School Districts

Depending on where you live, you may have one of the below school district races on your ballot.

  • VOTE YES

    Vote YES for Bellevue schools and students

  • No matter where we live and what we look like, we all believe every child deserves a quality education.

    The board of the Bellevue School District has proposed renewing the student enrichment levy to continue providing excellent educational opportunities for all students. Approving the levy will help students thrive through high-quality STEM and AP classes, instructional materials, transportation, technology, and special programs that are not funded by the state. This would maintain funding at the existing level of $0.75 per $1,000 of assessed property value, which would cost the owner of a median $1.3 million Bellevue home about $975 a year between 2023 and 2026.

    Vote YES on Bellevue School District Proposition No. 1 to give our students the headstart they need for a successful future.

  • VOTE YES

    Vote YES for modern schools and technology

  • The pandemic has demonstrated the importance of having modern school facilities and up-to-date technology available for all students. Proposition No. 2, the Replacement for Technology and Capital Projects Levy, aims to provide Bellevue students with classroom technology and safety improvements to buildings like improved ventilation, roofing, and more.

    Proposition 2, which would renew the current levy that's set to expire, would start at $0.58 per $1,000 of assessed property value in 2023 and gradually drop each year until it reaches $0.54 cents in 2026. This would amount to about $754 in 2023 for the owner of a median-priced Bellevue home of $1.3 million.

    Help Bellevue students secure a bright future in safe, modern facilities with the technology they need to succeed - vote YES on Proposition No. 2.

  • VOTE YES

    Vote YES for modern schools and technology

  • The pandemic has made access to computers and modern more important than ever to students' learning. If passed, Proposition No. 1 would allow Federal Way School District to continue funding critical technology needs for students, including laptops and network security. The renewal levy starts at $0.20 per $1,000 in assessed value and declines almost yearly until it reaches $0.17 in 2028. This totals about $250 for the owner of a $500,000 home in 2023.

    Federal Way students need our support to receive an education that prepares them for the 21st century. Vote YES on Federal Way School District Proposition 1.

    Vote YES for Federal Way schools and students

  • Federal Way School District Proposition No. 2 aims to maintain critical resources for students, including school nurses, counselors, special education, and music and athletic programs. Like Proposition No. 1, it is a renewal of the existing levy that's set to expire. The levy starts at $1.78 in 2023 and ends at $1.89 in 2026, which would cost the owner of a $500,000 home $890 in 2023.

    Every child, regardless of what their background or education, deserves an equitable and rich education. Vote YES on Federal Way School District's Proposition No. 2 to continue to maintain the district's support for our students.

  • VOTE YES

    Vote YES for Kent schools and students

  • Every child, regardless of their race or family income, deserves a quality education that prepares them for a rapidly-changing world.

    That's why the board of the Kent School District has proposed renewing the Educational Program and Operations Levy, which helps fund critical needs for students that aren't covered by the state. If approved, Proposition No. 1 would replace the expiring levy at the existing voter-approved rate of $1.88 per $1,000 in assessed property value in 2023 and $1.86 in 2024. This means the owner of a $550,000 home could expect to pay around $1,034 in 2023. The funding goes towards already-established programming as well as staff, which includes nurses, mental health counselors, career support staff, arts and athletics, and smaller class sizes.

    Research shows that creative activity, mental wellness resources, and smaller class sizes help kids become lifelong learners and healthy adults. Vote YES on Proposition No. 1 to build our students the schools they need to thrive.

    Vote YES for Lake Washington schools and students

  • We believe that every child, regardless of their race or where they were born, deserves a quality education that prepares them for a rapidly-changing world.

    To meet this goal, the board of the Lake Washington School District has put 3 propositions on the ballot. Proposition No. 1 is the Replacement of Existing Educational Programs and Operations Levy. This provides funding for a wide range of programs not covered by state funding, including substitute teachers, nurses, summer learning, special education staffing, mental health counselors, extracurriculars, early learning, and more. If approved, the proposition would replace an expiring levy at the current level. At a rate of $1.03 per $1,000 of assessed value from 2023 to 2026, this would cost the owner of an $800,000 home roughly $824 a year.

    The current levy provides one out of every seven dollars in the district budget. Vote YES on Proposition No. 1 for Lake Washington School District so that all students can continue to have a quality education.

At a rate of $0.49 per $1,000 in assessed value from 2023 to 2026, these improvements would cost the owner of an $800,000 home about $392 a year.

  • VOTE YES

    Vote YES for new schools and smaller classes

  • The final measure of the trio of levies for Lake Washington School District is Proposition No. 3, the Building Excellence Levy. The district notes that it has grown tremendously in recent years, with 7,300 new students and an anticipated 3,500 more by 2030. The funds from this levy would, if approved, go towards the construction of a new elementary school, expansions at Finn Hill, Kirkland, and Redmond middle schools, and additional high school capacity for 1,200 students, for an estimated total of 2,350 more students.

    The levy would start at a rate of $0.42 per $1,000 in assessed value in 2023 and slowly increase to $0.53 by 2028. The owner of an $800,000 home could expect to pay approximately $336 per year in 2023.

    With many schools already nearly full, the district estimates that if no action is taken, 83 percent of schools will be at or over their capacity by 2030. Overcrowded classrooms can make it harder for students to access the materials and technology they need to learn. Vote YES on Proposition No. 3 to help our schools be the foundation for student excellence in the Lake Washington School District.

    Vote YES for Seattle schools and students

  • We all believe that every child, regardless of their race or where they were born, deserves a quality education that prepares them for a rapidly-changing world. Renewing the Educational Programs and Operations Levy is critical to providing this opportunity for all students in Seattle Public Schools.

    Proposition No. 1 would allow schools to continue funding essential programs and services, including school nurses, custodians, child nutrition, instructional materials, special education, STEM programs, and more. The levy would maintain the existing rate of $0.74 from 2023 to 2025, which would cost the owner of a median $888,000 house $657 a year.

    Without local funding, the district would be forced to make deep cuts in staffing and services that are important for students' success. Vote YES on Proposition No. 1 to support a great education for all Seattle kids.
