Tuesday is Election Day in many cities and towns throughout the state. In addition to voting for mayors and councilmembers, residents of 114 school districts will be casting ballots on levy proposals to raise money for local schools. Officials at some schools have already said they’ll be forced to eliminate or cut back on sports and other extracurricular activities unless those tax hikes are approved. Becky Oakes, Executive Director of the Missouri State High School Activities Association, says the Association takes no position on any of the levy proposals, adding schools might have to become creative in their efforts to keep sports and other extracurricularactivities. That creativity might include deciding to have teams wear old uniforms instead of new ones.
