Should the district seek a local levy for additional operating funds? If so, when and why?

The district had to make many cuts to the staffing due to budget reductions during the last year. Despite that, the district is still facing a budget deficit in the next few years. I think a levy is necessary and I believe voters in our district will support funding for things like increased staffing at the higher grades, librarians, and to accommodate the professional time our teachers need (which results in Early Release days).
