Does Peoria Unified currently have an override in place and what does it fund?

Posted by:

Like most school districts in the state, the Peoria Unified School District has an M&O override in place, which has been approved by voters since 1996. The override currently in place funds employees in our schools such as school nurses, and assistant principals, as well as programs, such as physical education, arts education, reading and gifted programs, all-day kindergarten, athletics, and extracurricular activities. It is also used to provide teacher and staff compensation and helps maintain class sizes to a standard set forth by our Governing Board.
