Thank You Ephrata!

Greetings and good morning.

Following Tuesday's elections, I wanted to take a moment to pause and say “THANK YOU!”  As of the writing of this message, our 2 ballot propositions are fairing as follows:

  • Capital Projects - PASSING with a 55.68%
  • Buses - PASSING 59.54%
    • As a reminder: Levies require a simple majority (50%) to pass.  Bonds require a supermajority (60%) to pass.

As a District, we are extremely grateful for the continued support that the community of Ephrata shows to its schools. Ephrata has never failed a school district levy and that is a powerful message of trust. We look forward to getting to work on the projects these levies support. This funding will help us continue to serve the needs of our students and our community.

Ephrata Schools will begin to receive these funds in the Spring of 2023 and work will begin shortly after. We will share and celebrate our progress along the way.

THANK YOU Ephrata for all you do for OUR Schools. We are eternally thankful.


It's good to be a Tiger!

Superintendent, Ephrata Schools
