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 Peninsula students and schools

  • The Peninsula School District board has proposed two propositions to ensure that students have everything they need to succeed. Proposition 1, the Replacement Educational Programs and Operations Levy, is a renewal of an expiring levy. 

    If passed by voters, the levy rate would start at $1.13 per $1,000 of assessed value in 2024 and it decreases by one cent a year until it reaches $1.11 in 2026. This means that the owner of a median $750,000 Gig Harbor home could expect to pay around $833 a year. 

    The expiring levy accounted for about 18 percent of the district's budget and the renewal levy would fill a similar gap, funding many programs and services not paid for by the state. This includes athletics, transportation, clubs, preventative maintenance, nurses at all 17 schools, counselors, and more. 

    Help our local schools provide a quality education and a healthy life for every student. Vote yes on Proposition 1!

  • VOTE YES

    Vote YES for safety and technology at Peninsula schools

  • Proposition 2 is the second levy on the ballot this year for the Peninsula School District. The Safety, Security, and Technology Levy is aimed at improving school infrastructure and safety. At a modest rate of $0.25 per $1,000 in assessed value, the levy would help provide schools with emergency communications systems, security cameras, secure building access controls, and more. 

    The district estimates that the current total levy rate is $2.01 per $1,000 of assessed value. If voters pass both of the proposed levies it would reduce the rate to $1.82 per $1,000. Passing both propositions will help the district continue to provide a safe space for an outstanding education. Vote yes on Proposition 2 for the Peninsula School District.

  • VOTE YES

    Vote YES for Steilacoom schools and students

  • No matter where we live and what we look like, we all believe every child deserves a quality education in a modern environment. The Steilacoom Historical School District's Proposition No. 1 aims to provide this opportunity for the students of the district with infrastructure and safety upgrades. 
    This bond will replace the expiring bond, so there will be no increase in the local tax rate for our schools if it's passed. 

    If passed, Proposition No. 1 would allow the school district to issue bonds to fund the construction of a new middle school, a high school stadium and performing arts center, adding classrooms to the existing middle school, improvements to all elementary school campuses, and adding security and health upgrades to schools. The bonds would be repaid by a levy of $1.26 per $1,000 of assessed property value. For the owner of a home with an assessed value of $500,000, that would cost approximately $630 a year.

    Our students are counting on us for these critical improvements to accessibility, safety, and serving the district's growing population. Vote YES on Proposition No. 1 to put Steilacoom Historical School District students on the road to success.
