Later, the district enlisted community members to help develop a new strategic plan that contains elements that are to be funded by the proposed levy. The district also spelled out $11 million in cuts that would need to be made if voters reject the proposal.

Kubiak said that the message is clear that a “yes” vote means instituting the new strategic plan, stabilizing the district’s finances and strengthening school security. He offered no specifics about the fundraising thus far, saying only that “we’re on target.”

Maki said that the campaign will be “ready to roll full force” when schools are back in session this fall. In the meantime, the group is entrusting liaisons at each of the district’s schools to talk up the levy at community events — even neighborhood barbecues.

Said Maki, “You have to engage the people where they live.”
