Mount Vernon Ballot Measures

Mount Vernon School District School District Proposition #1

  • VOTE YES
    Mount Vernon Schools Proposition 1
  • If adopted, Proposition No. 1 would replace the expiring 2021 levy, which funds critical operating costs in Mount Vernon School District No. 320. Without the funds provided by the levy, the district would struggle to continue offering necessary resources to students such as instructional materials, transportation, technology, facility maintenance, and more.

    This 2022 through 2024 levy would raise funds at a rate of $2.50 per $1,000 of assessed property value. This means that the owner of a median $350,000 home could expect to pay about $875 per year.

    Levies such as Proposition No. 1 help the district pay for baseline education expenses the state doesn't fully fund. Keep supporting our local schools and well-rounded students with a YES vote on Proposition No. 1.

Mount Vernon School District School District Proposition #2

  • VOTE YES
    Mount Vernon Schools Proposition 2
  • Proposition No. 2 seeks to adopt a technology modernization levy for Mount Vernon School District No. 320. Like Proposition 1, this is not a new tax, and the combined tax rates for Propositions 1 and 2 would decrease over their three-year span.

    The 2022 levy would start at a rate of $0.95 per $1,000 of assessed property value and decrease to $0.86 in 2023 and $0.79 in 2024. This means that the owner of a median $350,000 home could expect to pay about $333 in 2022. The funds raised would be used for curriculum resources, supporting mobile technology labs, equipment repair and replacement, and security upgrades.

    In these challenging times, an investment in school safety and technology is exactly what the district's students need to thrive. Vote YES on Proposition No. 2.

    Mount Vernon School District Prop 2

    Proposition No. 2 seeks to adopt a technology modernization levy for Mount Vernon School District No. 320. Like Proposition 1, this is not a new tax, and the combined tax rates for Propositions 1 and 2 would decrease over their three-year span.
