School levy by the numbers What proponents, opponents are saying as ballots get ready to be mailed to public MORE INSIDE

By Kristen Cates Tribune Staff Writer

Great Falls Public Schools is asking voters to approve a $1.6 million levy, which would result in a yearly property tax increase of $18.85 on a home valued at $100,000. Here is a breakdown of what the request contains, and what people are saying about the request. $495,000 to pay for teachers: This includes hiring two additional elementary classroom teachers,

cording to Ruth Uecker, assistant superintendent for elementary schools. Supporters point out that the district has cut 50 teaching positions in the last five years and say it needs to start adding positions. Âť Residents such as Janis Gallison argue the district is spending money on Common Core curriculum, which she believes is not the rigorous math curriculum teachers have said it is. Proponents say Common Core is not part of the levy request, and it is misleading to bring it into the levy discussion. $175,000 to pay for gifted education as well as hiring two drug and See LEVY, 5A

Easter has been described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a moveable feastâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Christianityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s holiest celebration, which floats across the calendar from year to year, and can fall on any date between March 22 and April 25. Many people are familiar with the general rule of when Easter will occur: the first Sunday following the first full moon that follows the Northern spring equinox. Fewer are aware of the centuries-long process it took to arrive at that calculation, or the many recalculations that took place before the date of Easter was finally agreed upon â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by most.

Rescue Mission attempts to help thousands of people resurrect their lives. In fact, the shelter is brimming with people even though it recently rented a third building and moved its administrative offices there to make room for more people in the women and families center. On a typical month, the Rescue Mission was turning away 35 to 50 families a month in 2013 until the See MISSION, 2A
