UPDATED 8:20 p.m.:

Perkins Schools is proposing a 10-year, 6.73-mill emergency operating levy to voters. 

If approved, the levy would generate about $2.8 million annually for the district, which would stabilize its deficit budget and restore $2 million in costly cuts approved earlier this summer.

It would cost the owner of a $100,000 home an additional $206 in taxes each year

Okay now, I go on my Facebook and all I see is students posting of all this. Oh so your saying I have to pay over 2,000 for all my sports, I'm getting stuff taken away,saying they are suffering? This just shows how selfish people can be. Think of the poor places of America, and number one these students are not even paying for this extra tax money, plus some of these people can't even afford this extra money.
