Bremerton, North Kitsap school levies see success

Bremerton, North Kitsap school levies see success

On March 13, voters in Blaine County can support a strong school system by voting in favor on the supplemental levy that is on the ballot.

Yelm Community School's $76 million construction bond measure to rebuild two schools and add onto a third was coming up short in early results from Tuesday's special election.

- "I know it's not the best system to have property taxes bear the brunt of education costs - but what other options do we have?" questioned Mountain View School District 244 Superintendent Marcus Scheibe. The bond issues need 60% support and there's a voter validation requirement, which Mead Superintendent Tom Rockefeller says has been met. Under the legislators' school-funding plan, property taxes will increase.

In MVSD (formerly Joint School District 241) a levy has not failed since 2007.

None of the levy funds in either school district can be collected until 2019. It will pay for security and infrastructure improvements throughout existing schools. Just like in Olympia, the district's maintenance and operations levy is set to go down in 2019 under the new local levies cap.

CV not only built the schools it promised with the bond issue that is now expiring, it is also building an additional elementary school and rebuilding North Pines Middle School.

One levy, a replacement educational programs levy is passing with 4,068 to 2,180 votes or about 65 percent approval, while the technology levy is passing with 4,001 to 2,245 votes or about 64 percent approval.

“By 2025, we are supposed to grow by about 3,000 more kids” to add to the 10,500 students already in the district, he said in an earlier interview.

The bond will fund the renovation of the auditorium, classrooms, corridors and restrooms at the junior-senior high school. That would include entry controls and cameras.

Some 69 percent of West Valley School District voters approved a three-year levy rate of $1.50 starting in 2019. In King County, the average increase is about 17 percent this year, according to the King County Assessor's Office.

More than 60 percent of voters approved a three-year levy rate of $1.50 starting in 2019 at the Reardan-Edwall School District.

Asotin-Anatone School District: The three-year levy of $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed valuation passed with 650 votes, or 70.42 percent, in favor of the measure and 273 votes, or 29.58 percent, opposed, with 923 votes in all.

Nearly 69 percent of Riverside School District voters approved a a three-year levy rate of $1.50 starting in 2019.
