Touchet School District has a three-year replacement Educational Programs & Operations (EP&O) levy on the February 8, 2022 ballot. A levy is a locally-approved tax based on property values. The 2022 EP&O Levy replaces the expiring levy that was approved by local voters in 2018. The 2022 levy is not a new tax.
EP&O Levy funds are used to maintain current educational programs not fully funded by the state, including:
Food service support
Maintenance and operations
Music and the arts
Special education services
Summer school opportunities
