Battle Ground Ballot Measures

Battle Ground School District School District Proposition #5

  • VOTE YES
    Vote YES On Battle Ground Proposition No. 5
  • The Board of Directors of Battle Ground School District No. 119 are asking voters to renew the district's expiring four-year levy. Throughout the district, the levy pays for a wide range of services, including 260 staff positions like nurses and psychologists, technology, social-emotional support, textbooks, special education services, building maintenance, activities, and more. Without a renewal, the district would be unable to meet students' educational needs.

    Proposition 5 would reduce the current levy, which is $2.50 per $1000 of assessed property value, to a rate of $1.95 for 2021, which would increase to $2.20 in 2023 through 2025. The decreased rate reflects the board's acknowledgment of the pandemic's impact on the community while balancing the need for school resources. The cost for the owner of a $400,000 home would be about $780 in 2021.

    Now more than ever, our kids need our support in navigating online learning and the transition back to in-person education. Support healthy schools and students with a YES vote on Proposition 5 for Battleground School District No. 119.

Camas Ballot Measures

Camas School District School District Proposition #4

  • VOTE YES
    Camas School District Proposition No. 4
  • If approved, Proposition 4 will replace the expiring 2021 educational programs and operations levy. The funds raised by levies make up about 20 percent of the district's revenue and are used to bridge the gap between student needs and state funding.

    This is not a new levy or tax, but an opportunity to continue funding student needs such as extracurriculars, food and nutrition services, special education, advanced education, and other critical needs. At a rate of $2.50 per $1,000 of assessed property value, a homeowner of a $500,000 home can expect to pay about $1,250 a year. The district expects that the slight increase in the levy amount will be offset by a decrease in bond collection, making the total projected local school tax rate the lowest it's been in 13 years.

    As the pandemic rages on, community investment in student wellness and success is critical. Support local schools and vote YES on Proposition 4.

    Camas School District No. 117 Prop 4

    If approved, Proposition 4 will replace the expiring 2021 educational programs and operations levy. The funds raised by levies make up about 20 percent of the district's revenue and are used to bridge the gap between student needs and state funding.

Camas School District School District Proposition #5

  • VOTE YES
    Camas School District Proposition No. 5
  • Similar to Proposition 4, Proposition 5 would replace an expiring levy. The capital levy provides funds for fire protection systems, building maintenance, and technology in our schools.

    The 2022 - 2024 levy would raise funds at a rate of $0.54 per $1,000 of assessed property value, which would cost the owner of a $500,000 home approximately $270 a year.

    The capital levy pays for more than 98 percent of technology used across the district. As the pandemic increases the emphasis on digital learning, students need access to these technology resources more than ever before. Vote YES on Proposition 5 for Camas School District.

    Camas School District No. 117 Prop 5

    Similar to Proposition 4, Proposition 5 would replace an expiring levy. The capital levy provides funds for fire protection systems, building maintenance, and technology in our schools.
