The Education Act allows public and separate school boards to pass a resolution to allow a vote of the electors. The electors of the school division vote on whether they support a Special School Tax Levy.
A board can only pass a resolution in the year of a general election. If the electors agree to a levy, it can last for no more than four years. It ends on December 31 of the year of the next general election.
The process for conducting a Special School Tax Levy has several specific steps. Boards must complete the steps while following the legal requirements in the Education Act and the Special School Tax Levy Plebiscite Regulation.
The Special School Tax Levy Plebiscite Information Package outlines the process that school boards must follow.
The Public Notice Form must be accurately and entirely filled out to complete the Special School Tax Levy Plebiscite.
