Lewis Central strives to provide the best educational experience for students. We are committed to working with our community to help Inspire Excellence in every child that walks through our doors. This webpage will provide further details into how we would utilize the requested funds to accomplish those goals. We strongly encourage participation in the public forums that will take place leading up to Election Day on November 7, 2023.

Two Votes

On November 7, there will be two votes associated with this project.

This first will allow Lewis Central to borrow an amount not to exceed $90 million.

The second will allow Lewis Central to raise the levy no higher than $4.05 in order to pay for the $90 million (current estimation provides no more than a $3.60 levy to raise the $90 million).
