Central Valley Ballot Measures

Central Valley School District School District Proposition #1

  • VOTE YES
    Central Valley School Levy
  • If adopted, Proposition No. 1 would replace an expiring levy that funds several much-needed resources for students, including nurses, counselors, special education programs, crossing guards, curriculum, and technology for every student that needs it.

    At a rate of $2.40 per $1,000 of assessed value, the levy tax rate for 2022 through 2024 will be less than the expiring 2021 $2.48 per $1,000 levy tax rate. A homeowner of a median-priced $340,000 house can expect to pay about $816 a year.

    As students struggle to keep up in these difficult times, now is the perfect opportunity to continue our investment in their futures. Vote YES on Proposition No. 1 for Central Valley School District.

    Central Valley School District No. 356 Prop 1

    If adopted, Proposition No. 1 would replace an expiring levy that funds several much-needed resources for students, including nurses, counselors, special education programs, crossing guards, curriculum, and technology for every student that needs it.

Mead Ballot Measures

Mead School District School District Proposition #1

  • VOTE YES
    Mead School Levy
  • Proposition No.1 seeks a renewal of the Mead School District No. 354's expiring levy for educational programs and operations.

    If approved, the 2022 through 2024 levy would be $2 per $1,000 of assessed property value, meaning the owner of a $300,000 home could expect to pay around $600 a year. Money raised from the levy will continue to enrich students' lives and prepare them for success by funding nurses, social workers, extracurriculars, STEM courses, and work-based learning opportunities.

    Levies like this help bridge the gap between state funding and critical student needs, making up around 11 percent of the district's operating revenue. Help students thrive with a YES vote on Proposition No. 1.

Spokane Ballot Measures

Spokane School District School District Proposition #1

  • VOTE YES
    Vote YES On Spokane Proposition No. 1
  • Proposition No.1 would continue to support essential programs and services in the Spokane School District No. 81 that are not funded by the state. This levy, which replaces the expiring 2018 levy at a lower tax rate, would fund 36 nurses, Advanced Placement courses, counselors, technology needs, behavior specialists, extracurricular activities, and more.

    The levy rate would start at $2.40 per $1,000 of assessed property value in 2022 and increase to $2.45 in 2023, with a final rate of $2.50 in 2024. This means that the owner of a median $300,000 home could expect to pay about $720 a year.

    Spokane Public Schools has received national recognition for keeping our kids safe and for the level of education that continues to be delivered during this unprecedented pandemic. Proposition No. 1 is not a new tax, but a replacement levy that will continue uplifting our students in with the health and education programming they truly need. Vote YES on Spokane School District No. 81's Proposition No. 1.
