School Funding Measures

School Funding Image

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 Image

 

Bonds are for building. The state does not fund 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 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. 

 

 

On February 8, 2022, North Kitsap voters approved Proposition 1, Replacement Educational Program and Operations (EP&O) Levy, and Proposition 2, Replacement Facilities and Technology Capital Projects Levy. Thanks to the support of our local community, we will continue to provide high-quality teaching and learning for our students. We will continue to invest in our schools' health, comfort, safety, and security.  We will also continue to provide our students and staff with the tools necessary for 21st-century learning.
