2019 Maintenance and Operations Override
The Peoria Unified School District is nestled in the Northwest Valley of Peoria, Arizona and is home to 42 stellar public schools that are unique and created to fit the needs of all students.
This November, voters who reside in the Peoria Unified School District will exercise their local budget control to vote for Peoria Unified’s maintenance and operations override.
The override would keep $26 million per year circulating through the district currently used for people and programs and add an additional $4 million in funding for safety initiatives and additional staff compensation.
This is a MAIL IN ONLY election. Your ballot will come in the mail and will need placed back in the mail, so it makes it in time to be counted by Nov. 1. For additional facts and information on the Override, please visit the district website at www.peoriaunified.org/bondsandoverrides.
