WHAT IS PROP 2?

Proposition 2 is the latest ballot initiative by the St. Joseph School District to levy funds for our schools. All of the funds raised by Prop 2 will be used in the classroom, attracting and retaining the best teachers. The new School District Administration put this plan forward with a commitment to accountability and protecting taxpayers. A Vote Yes on Prop 2 is a vote yes for students, teachers, and the taxpayers of St. Joseph.

The proof is in the great strides the school district has taken to improve the quality of education for all students in St. Joseph. The new administration has increased test scores, improved attendance, and more students are pursuing higher education.
