    Election day

    This election will help preserve current fine arts and athletic programs such as art, general and instrumental music, and physical education, as well as maintain class sizes. The funds will also be used to attract and retain highly qualified teachers
     
    The total cost of the override for homeowners is a continuation of $19.23 a month property tax on the average assessed home value. 
     
    Without your support the district will have to reduce the operational budget by over $9 million each of the next three years of the phase down. Passage of the override will ensure that your District will avoid cutting elective classes, programs, and services that directly benefit students.  
     
    The state has cut education funding for the past eleven years, causing steep budget deficits for DVUSD schools. Supporting the override will allow the continuation of quality educational programs for our students.
