BREAKING NEWS

Voters are being asked to approve school levy funding in Feb. 13 Special Election
February 11, 2018




CLICK TO ENLARGE
(REGIONAL) – School levies (now called enrichment levies) take center center stage on the Feb. 13 Special Election ballot in Washington.

Almost every school district in Snohomish County is asking voters to approve one -- including the cities of Everett, Snohomish, Monroe, Sultan, Lake Stevens, Marysville and tiny Index, Washington (pop. about 200) just off State Route 2 on the way to Stevens Pass.

Most of them are replacement levies that finance basic programs and school operations. Eight districts are also asking voters to renew or add capital levies as well as ones financing technology needs for students.

The twist this year has to do with a law passed last year by the state legislature in response to the Washington State Supreme Court’s McClellan decision – that’s the one that requires the state to fully fund public education - ergo billions more in state money is going to schools over the next four years which in turn means the amount of money the state collects from property owners earmarked for education is going up this year.

And the double whammy there is that in a lot of areas property values have increased sharply -- which means voters in those areas may feel a bit of sticker shock on these levies (hundreds more dollars per year) that they would not have experienced in previous years.

Items:

~ Three districts this election (Everett, Marysville and Darrington) are asking voters to approve four-year levies that are higher than the state-imposed cap -- which is $1.50 per $1,000 assessed property value or $2,500 per student, whichever brings in less money.

~ Tiny Index (pop. About 200) is asking voters to approve $212 per assessed $1,000 next year. The following year that would drop to $1.50
