Thank you, Ankeny, for your support of PPEL!

The members of the Board of Education would like to thank Ankeny voters for supporting the school district with a 76 percent approval of renewing the Physical Plant and Equipment Levy.

The school district will use this funding to continue to be good stewards of the facilities provided by our community, focusing on repair, equipping and improving your schools. On behalf of the Board, our staff, and most importantly, our students, “Thank you, Ankeny.”
