Northshore School District will ask voters on Feb. 13, 2018 to consider renewing the Proposition 1: Renewal Educational Programs and Operations Levy, which provides 20 percent of the school district's budget for educational programs, services and daily operations. It would renew the current four-year levy that expires in 2018 and provide up to $234 million over the next four years.

This levy ensures that the district can continue high quality academic programs, including:

  • Special education
  • Academic support for advanced learners
  • Transportation not funded by the state
  • Interventions for struggling learners
  • Enrichment and extra-curricular activities including music, drama, sports and clubs
  • Basic education needs not funded by the state and federal government
     

In addition, this levy helps the district meet some of the key goals in the current Strategic Plan:

  • Creating responsible, resilient, empathetic learners
  • Innovative, creative, critical thinkers
  • Growth for every student, elimination of outcome and opportunity gaps
  • Ready for lifelong success after graduation
     

Current tax rate on Educational Programs and Operations Levy: $1.93
New estimated tax rate: $1.82
*Per $1,000 assessed property value
