ISD 166 sets 2022 levy with little change from previous year

School District 166 set its preliminary levy at the September 16 school board meeting at the maximum amount allowed, which equals a .8 percent increase. WTIP spoke with Superintendent Chris Lindholm who said the current levy number can be decreased, but not increased.

Lindholm said anyone with questions about the school levy can attend the School District 166 Truth-in-Taxation hearing at 6:00 p.m. on December 16.

Superintendent Lindholm also spoke about the COVID-19 situation at the school. As of September 17, Lindholm told WTIP that there have been no known cases of the coronavirus in the school. There have been individuals who quarantined due to contact with someone who has tested positive.

Lindholm talked about the quarantine and testing process and reminded everyone to stay home if they feel ill.

Lindholm, who is present on the ISD 166 campus daily, said he is pleased to see how students and staff are responding to the requirement to wear a mask throughout the school day. He said for the most part, students are wearing their masks without complaint.

Superintendent Lindholm also explained the glitch that prevented live streaming the school board meeting. To see the school board meeting video after-the-fact, click here.
