The Yes for Kids campaign would like to thank the community for its support of two out of the three levy requests this year. We are particularly grateful for the widespread support of the elementary general fund levy and the exceptionally high voter turnout.

We attribute this success in part to the hundreds of volunteers who spent untold hours creating awareness about the election and informing their neighbors how mill levies work and the importance of their passage.

While we are pleased with the outcome, we know there are many challenges ahead. The Chamber of Commerce, parents and volunteers involved in the Yes for Kids campaign recognize the importance of a strong school board with fiscal stewardship, transparency, and community involvement as its cornerstones. We hope you will join us as we continue our efforts to advocate for the change necessary to provide a quality education for our kids.

Again, thank you Billings for your support of public education. Working together, we have unlimited potential to make our school district one of the top performing in the nation.
