What is an Enrichment Levy, and is it different than a Maintenance and Operations (M&O) Levy?

As of the 2019 collection year Maintenance and Operations (M&O) levies will be called Enrichment Levies.

Enrichment Levies will have a maximum levy rate of $1.50 per $1000 assessed value.

  • If a school district has a Transportation Vehicle Enrichment levy – it will be in addition to the $1.50 maximum levy rate.
  •  If a school district currently has a voter approved, multi-year, operation levy in place. It will be an M&O levy for 2018 at the rate voters approved. Any subsequent year levy (2019, 2020) will become an Enrichment Levy with a maximum levy rate of $1.50 per $1000 assessed value.
