PEWAUKEE, WI - At its Oct. 22 meeting, the Pewaukee School District Board of Education approved a district tax levy of $26,051,903 for the 2018-19 school year. This marks the third consecutive year with a levy reduction and the fourth decrease in the last five years.

We take great pride in being responsible stewards of the resources our community bestows upon us.”
