School levies online chat set for 3 p.m. today



Representatives from the five Clark County school districts with levies on the Feb. 12 ballot will join reporters from The Columbian for a live online chat from 3 to 4 p.m. today to discuss education funding.

Education reporters Susan Parrish and Tyler Graf will be talking to officials from the Vancouver, Battle Ground, Camas, Ridgefield and La Center school districts. Web Editor John Hill will moderate.

The five school districts are asking voters to approve eight levies. Along with each district’s maintenance and operations levy, the Vancouver and Camas school districts are asking voters to approve separate technology levies, while the La Center School District is proposing a capital fund levy.

People interested in participating in the live chat and posing their questions should log on to The Columbian.
