Bainbridge Ballot Measures

Bainbridge School District School District Proposition #1

  • VOTE YES
    Bainbridge Island School Levy Prop 1
  • The Board of Directors of Bainbridge Island School District No. 303 is seeking to renew its enrichment and operations levy for schools districtwide. This levy, like the expiring levy it replaces, helps bridge the gap between student needs and state-provided funding for schools. Proposition 1 would pay for resources and services such as textbooks, STEM programs, extracurriculars, special education, nurses, and counselors.

    If approved, the levy would raise funds at a rate of $1.04 per $1,000 of assessed value in 2022 and would increase slightly to $1.06 and $1.07 per $1,000 in 2023 and 2024. This means the owner of a median-priced $820,000 home would pay about $853 in 2022.

    Vote YES on Proposition No. 1 to continue community support for healthy, academically-prepared students.
