Riverview School District No. 407

Proposition No. 2
Replacement Technology Capital Projects Levy

The Board of Directors of Riverview School District No. 407 adopted Resolution No. 09-09 concerning a technology levy.  This proposition authorizes acquiring technology and equipment, including classroom computers; and authorizes the following excess levies for such purposes on all taxable property within the District:



Approximate Levy Rate/$1,000 Assessed Value















Should this proposition be approved?



Passage of Proposition No. 2 would allow the levy of $3,870,322 in property taxes within Riverview School District No. 407 (the “District”) for collection in the school years from 2010-2011 through 2014-2015. In accordance with Resolution No. 09-09 approving this proposition, these taxes would be deposited in the District’s Capital Projects Fund to pay part of the cost of construction, renovation, improvements and expansion of new and existing facilities, for technology improvements, and equipment and training to meet the current and future educational programs for its students. If authorized by the voters and based on current assessed valuation information, estimated levy rates per $1,000 of assessed value would be $0.32 (2011 collection); $0.31 (2012 collection); $0.30 (2013 collection) and $0.30 (2014 collection).

As technology plays an increasingly important role in our classrooms, as well as in our business and support staff practices, Riverview must continue funding through the levy process as the state does not provide any direct funding for technology in schools. This 4-year Replacement Technology Levy will replace the current levy which expires in 2010.


Vote YES to give every student an equal chance to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to compete for jobs and college. This Replacement Technology Levy would enhance the educational environment by replacing existing outdated computers, improve classroom technologies, and upgrade emergency communications and safety systems, as well as continue to fund computer specialists and professional staff development.


Voting YES on this Replacement Technology Levy promises the continued 21st century education of our students.
