Key levy votes coming

These are crucial days for school districts across North Central Washington. In less than a week auditors will mail ballots for the Feb. 11 levy and bond elections, and so in a matter of days the future course of their funding will be decided.

Whether state educational policy pleases or angers you, there is no escaping the fact that local levies are a crucial source of funding. Levies are never routine. Their importance grows as state support wanes. They provide the difference between a functional school system and something clearly inadequate. Passage can bring schools as good as Washington policy allows, a source of community pride and opportunity. Failure is disastrous.
