School Funding Measures

K-12 education is not fully funded by the state of Washington, which is why districts across the state of Washington rely on local funding measures. These measures bridge the gap between the state funds and what we need to support our students, staff, and school buildings. 

BONDS ARE FOR BUILDING; LEVIES ARE FOR LEARNING

Bonds are for building. The state does not provide any funding for our school buildings' maintenance, repair, replacement, or construction. That is why districts rely on bonds to complete these projects. Bonds help ensure our facilities are up-to-date and can support the education of all students.

Levies are for learning. Levies provide funding for the critical day-to-day operations of the district. They fund staffing positions like nurses, counselors, paraeducators, and teachers. They also support extracurricular activities, technology, and safety and security updates. 

In 2022, our community approved a Replacement Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) levy and a Replacement Facilities and Technology Capital Levy.
