    Vote YES to continue critical funding for our schools

  • When our schools invest in the potential of our students, the entire Sumner-Bonney Lake community benefits, and this election voters will have an opportunity to ensure that all students receive the opportunities, resources, and information they need to enter today’s world. If approved, Sumner-Bonney Lake School District Proposition 1 would replace the expiring educational programs and operations levy which currently accounts for 16 percent of the day-to-day budget that is not covered by state funds

    Proposition 1 does not propose a new tax, but rather replaces an existing levy that currently covers essential daily operations for districtwide K-12 schooling in the city at a new rate of about $2.50 per $1,000 in assessed property value for four years. The owner of a median-priced $500,000 home in the county would pay about $1,250 a year. The value of the expenses currently financed by the levy can't be overstated and include special education programs, safety measures, educational materials, athletic and arts budgets, general maintenance needs, and salaries of teachers, counselors, and nurses. The proposition has received strong support from local progressive and education-focused organizations. 

    Vote Yes on Sumner-Bonney Lake School District Proposition 1 to continue critical public revenue for our schools.
