The Washougal School Board of Directors have approved a replacement Maintenance and Operations and replacement Technology Levy which appeared on the February 14, 2017 ballot, and was approved by Washougal voters.
The Maintenance and Operations Levy funds services and operations not funded by the state or federal government. These services include: health and safety; instructional support; athletics and activities; student learning and staffing; and operations and maintenance.
The Maintenance and Operations Levy rates will remain flat over the next three years (2018, 2019, and 2020) at $2.91 per $1,000 of assessed value. (NOTE: Changes to state law, enacted as part of the “levy swap” have impacted the collection rate for the Maintenance & Operations levy, which is capped at $1.50 per thousand starting in 2019. Please read our property taxes and the McCleary Decision page to understand this change.)
Technology Levy dollars pay for the district’s 1:1 initiative, up-to-date computers and devices, classroom instructional technology, professional development and coaching, technology infrastructure, and curriculum and software.
The Technology Levy rates are projected to remain flat over the three years (2018, 2019, and 2020) at $.30 per $1,000 of assessed value.
