Good things are happening at Southside! We continue to provide outstanding educational programs and facilities thanks to federal, state, and local funding. We rely on all three funding sources to support the student success we currently enjoy in our district.

  • textbooks
  • school supplies
  • utilities
  • building maintenance 
  • educational support staff

 Levy funding reflects the priorities of the local community. We are grateful for our local funding and are fully accountable to local taxpayers to keep our school functioning and our students learning.
