The Hood River County School District is seeking a continuation of its local option levy in the November election.  The district again seeking a levy of a $1.25 per $1,000 of assessed property value for the next five years, the same rate that has been in effect the last eight years when voters approved levies in 2004 and 2008.    The levy will raise an estimated $1.75 million per year for the district, and if approved would qualify the district to receive a 38 percent match from the state, about $665,000 per year.
