In 2011, the community passed a “substitute” levy that combined two emergency levies, one from 1993, and the second from 1996. The renewing of this levy is crucial to maintain the revenue necessary to operate Fairless Local Schools.
The substitute levy generates $1.7 million annually for the Fairless Local Schools. The community has been supporting this revenue since 1993. According to Fairless' five year forecast, “RENEWING” this levy will keep the district out of debt and allow it to maintain current operations and programs.
