Renton School District No. 403 is seeking to pass Proposition No. 1 for the improvement of school infrastructure in the district. Enrollment in Renton schools has increased by more than 2,200 students over the last 10 years, which has left many schools overcrowded. The proposition would fund construction of a new elementary school in the Hazen Feeder Area as well as district-wide building, accessibility, and security improvements. This $249 million bond would be financed through a reduced property tax rate of $3.52 per $1,000 of assessed property value. Vote YES to help Renton schools keep up with our rapidly growing population!
Renton School District No. 403 has proposed a replacement levy to continue funding education expenses not covered by the state. This measure covers expenses for important programs like music, drama, athletics, and hands-on welding and construction instruction. Proposition No. 2 would maintain a property tax of $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed property value, costing the owner of a median $404,000 home approximately $606 per year. Vote YES to ensure every student in Renton has the tools and resources they need to thrive!
