PPEL Election - April 7th

The Collins-Maxwell Community School District will be having a special public election to renew the voted Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (vPPEL). 

This is currently a $.67 levy and has been in place for over two decades.  The community was last asked to vote on it ten years ago.


The vPPEL is used to purchase buses, computers, furniture and other equipment for schools.  It is an important source of funding to maintain quality facilities and vehicles for our students.
