LEVY INFORMATION

 

Building the Best Future for Our Students

Tukwila School District is asking voters to consider renewing two levies in the Feb. 11, 2020 election – an Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) Levy and a Technology and Capital Levy -- to build the best future for our students.

 

  • Prop. 1: Renewal of the EP&O levy would build the best future for our students by continuing to fund the gap between state funding and the cost to operate the district, including:
    • Staffing positions such as nurses, counselors, family advocates and custodians
    • Academic programs and classroom support
    • Textbooks and other instructional materials
    • A portion of Special Education services
    • Transportation for students, and funding for a portion of student meals
    • Opportunities for extracurricular activities, such as athletics and clubs

 

  • Prop. 2: Renewal of the Technology and Capital Levy covers the gap between state funding and the cost to provide technolgoy for students and maintain the district's schools, including:
    • Ensuring access to technology to ensure students are prepared for the careers of tomorrow
    • Funding for classroom technology, including repolacing aging computers and other hardware
    • Upgrades to emergency communications resources
    • Safety related improvements to school buildings
    • Criticial repairs to maximize building energy efficieny, such as replace major heating systems and lighting systems

What do the two measures cost?

The current levies are not new taxes and will expire at the end of 2020. Renewal of the two levies will continue funding for our students and schools.

 

  • EP&O Levy rate: $1.75 per $1,000 of assessed property value from 2021-2024.
  • Technology and Capital Levy rate: 75 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value from 2021-2024.  For a homeowner in Tukwila with a $400,000 appraised property value, the cost is $300 a year or $25 a month.

The total tax rate for both measures is $2.50.
