School Districts

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

  • VOTE YES

    Vote YES to support vital funding for Puyallup schools

  • Puyallup’s school district thrives when students and staff have the resources, infrastructure, and support they need. Puyallup School District Proposition 1 authorizes a capital levy on excess property taxes in order to restore, improve, and replace long-neglected school infrastructure.

    Proposed to address critical maintenance and vital facility improvements, the levy would finance a range of upgrades in building infrastructure, learning technology, school safety, and outdoor learning and security to bring the school district up to code and into better alignment with student needs. Some specific improvements that the levy would target include heating, cooling, lighting, broadband, fire and security systems, disability accommodations, audio/visual classroom equipment, athletic infrastructure, software, and hardware. At a rate of $0.87 per $1,000 of assessed value, the levy would cost the owner of a median-priced $550,000 Puyallup home about $479 a year. 

    A properly funded school district is a cornerstone of a healthy community, and students, staff, and families of our school district deserve to feel confident that Puyallup offers a quality education in a safe and welcoming environment.

    Vote Yes on Puyallup School District Proposition 1.

  • VOTE YES

    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.
