GFPS is asking for taxpayers to consider a $1.4 million dollar operational levy

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

May 8th voters hitting the polls to vote on a 1.4 Million dollars operational levy for the Great Falls Public School System. Tuesday citizens took to the streets all over town in hopes to persuade taxpayers to vote *yes*

Classes could be short as well as overcrowding in the classroom because teachers could possibly lose jobs. School board member, Jeff Gray, said that's just not something the school system is willing to risk and there are too many downfalls if this levy is not passed. 

Gray said, "cuts for teachers that affect your community fewer people in the community that are paying taxes so it affects all the way around."
