Lake Washington Ballot Measures

Lake Washington School District School District Proposition #1


Expand and upgrade facilities in the Lake Washington School District

The Board of Directors of Lake Washington School District No. 414 is proposing a six-year, $120 million capital projects levy to expand and upgrade school facilities and increase security.

The Puget Sound area is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country and many schools are struggling to keep up with surging enrollments. The Lake Washington School District has grown by 6,000 students in the last 10 years and expects to add another 2,000 students in the next 3 years. Proposition No. 1 would address overcrowding by adding classrooms at Lake Washington High School and Carson, Franklin, Rose Hill, and Twain Elementary Schools.

This important six-year proposal would replace an expiring levy at the rate of $0.29 per $1,000 of assessed home value in 2020 and decline to $0.25 in 2024, costing the owner of a median $800,000 home $232 per year. Our students deserve better than overcrowded and outdated schools. Vote YES on the Lake Washington School District Proposition No. 1!
