Volunteer now for school levy committee

March 5, 2013

By Staff

Every four years, the Issaquah School District asks local voters to approve levies to pay for educational essentials that the state does not fund, including school buses, classroom technology and about 20 percent of the operations budget.

Because current levies expire next year, the district is forming a community committee to help plan the renewal levy measures.

Representatives from the business, senior citizen and at-large communities are needed to attend three or four meetings on Wednesday evenings in April and May.

Call 837-7024 or email Levy2014@issaquah.wednet.edu if you are interested.

    Are we living beyond our means? Why does the state not provide funding for things like school buses? And why do we have an operations budget that is 20% over what the state gives us???

    I can’t remember the last time a school levy failed in Issaquah, but why are our schools depending on levies passing in order to survive? Levies should be for capital improvements, not for day-to-day operational costs.

Got something to say?
