WELCH -

McDowell County's School Board is asking its voters to pass a continuing school levy this month.

     The levy would not change the cost homeowners are paying right now and it would allow the board to continue updating their schools.
     Superintendent Nelson Spencer said the levy allows the students to use free textbooks and helps them buy new supplies for the classrooms.
     He said this is the same levy that has passed each term since 1945.
     Early voting began February first and regular voting will be held on February 15th.
