Toledo School District: Replacing Current School Levy
Next month, Toledo voters will be asked to approve a replacement for the levy that we're currently receiving. The current levy was $1.1 million each year for four years and the replacement would be $895,000 per year for two years. This represents a significant decrease in taxes- enough that the total tax rate including the new bond will be only 9 cents per $1000 more than we'll pay this year and 37 cents more than we paid in 2017 (before the bond).
The State pays for Basic Ed. McCleary is about Basic Ed, but like many communities, "Basic" has never been good enough. "Basic" won't do sports or music or all of Shop. These are things that have been important to the community.
On February 12, the community gets to decide if these things continue to be important. Be sure to vote when your ballot comes later this month.

WA ATG FEDERAL JUDGE BLOCKS TRUMP BIRTH CONTROL RULE IN 13 STATES AND D.C.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Jan 14 2019
Attorney General Ferguson is now 17-0 in litigation against the Trump Administration
OLYMPIA— A federal judge on Sunday temporarily blocked a Trump Administration birth control policy from going into effect in 13 states, including Washington, due to a lawsuit brought by those states’ attorneys general. The judge also blocked the policy from going into effect in the District of Columbia. The federal birth control policy allows employers who object to contraception to deny their female employees access to free birth control.
“President Trump’s unlawful and harmful birth control rules will go into effect in most states today – but not Washington, thanks to our legal challenge,” Ferguson said. “After two years of litigating against the Trump Administration, the people of Washington still haven’t lost a case.”
