The Washougal School Board of Directors have approved a replacement Maintenance and Operations and replacement Technology Levy to appear on the February 14, 2017 ballot.
The levies would replace the current levies, which are set to expire December 31, 2017.
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 proposed 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.
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 proposed Technology Levy rates will also remain flat over the next three years (2018, 2019, and 2020) at $.30 per $1,000 of assessed value.
