What's New

There's a lot going on in Altar Valley. Our District News page will give you a taste of why we are so proud of our students, our teachers, and our community.

Continuation of 10% M & O Budget Override

The Altar Valley School District Governing Board is asking voters to continue the 10% Maintenance and Operations Override. This override was originally approved by voters in 2002 and reapproved in 2008, and 2014.

This is a renewal of the current override, if renewed there is no change to local property taxes. This is not a new tax. The estimated tax rate for the override will be $0.95 per $100 of assessed valuation.

Renewal of the override will help us maintain:

  • Free full day kindergarten
  • Competitive teacher and staff salaries
  • Small class sizes
  • Free athletic programs

For a list of frequently asked questions, please see our September district newsletter. For additional information, please view our voter information pamphlet.

  • Physical Development
