Truman Public School Overview and Offerings for Families


Referendum Information Meetings:  

Please come to hear about the Truman Public School district's plan to revoke and replace existing referendums.  

Revoking and replacing will not add dollars to your taxes, but will change the number of times the district requires referendum elections in the next 10 years to 1 every 5 years instead of several in a 10 year span.  

The district needs to renew existing referendum's that are set to expire in the coming years 

and this is a very good time to combine them. 

Wednesday, September 15th, 2021 - 6:30 p.m. Truman Public School Library

Thursday, September 16th, 6:30 p.m. Lewisville Fire Hall

Join us to get the information needed to continue to support our school. Thank you.
