Facility Planning


Staples-Motley Schools are devoted to developing a long range facility plan that will meet the needs of our students and community. 

At the March 12th School Board meeting, the board unanimously approved making budget reductions up to $600,000 for the 2018-19 school year as well as putting an operating levy on the ballot.  The operating levy could be in addition to a building bond referendum, which approved, would help keep the district out of statutory operating debt until a building project is complete.  The building project is expected to reduce expenses and create efficiencies in the operation of the district.

If approved, a $505,000 operating levy would increase taxes on a $100,000 home by $5.58 per month or $67 per year.  The amount of $505,000 was chosen because that it would generate the maximum in state equalization aid.  For every 70 cents levied locally, the state will add 30 cents.

A Steering Committee made up of administration and community members is being formed. 

Information will be posted here as we move forward with the planning process.
