Vote YES for Tempe Kids!
Vote YES for Tempe Kids!
This month, the Tempe Elementary School District will ask voters to approve a 15% override to provide and preserve services that are crucial for students’ success. The District is asking for NO NEW MONEY, only a continuation of the 15% override that is currently in place. Voting “no” will result in a $35 million LOSS of funding over the next seven years.

By approving the $0.29 tax increase, students will receive the resources they need to excel from an early age. A “no” vote results in LOSS of funding, faculty, technology and security for students. LEARN MORE.
