Try, Try, Again: A Two-Step Strategy for Passing School Levies
Johnson, Paul A.
Journal of School Public Relations, v29 n1 p44-73 Win 2008
Passing property tax issues is an increasing challenge for many school districts. This article examines 21 school levy strategies identified through a literature review associated with successful school levy campaigns. These strategies were then used as a framework to evaluate one district's attempts to pass a school bond levy. Whereas the study confirms the importance of these strategies, it also presents evidence regarding a two-step approach to planning levy campaigns that might help districts pass levies. Suggestions for further research are discussed.
