We’re getting close to Feb. 11: Election day for our EP&O Replacement Levy. With just seven days left, we want to reiterate a few points about the voting process and the levy. 

Registering

Through Feb. 11, you can still register, but you’ll need to go in person to either:

Voting

  • Filling out the ballot is a simple process. The District’s EP&O levy is the only item on the ballot this time.
  • To return a completed ballot, just drop it in the mail (no postage necessary), or put it in a ballot drop box. There are more than 70 boxes all around King County, including ones at Issaquah City Hall, Sammamish City Hall and Newcastle City Hall.

Info on the levy

  • This levy is not a new tax. It would replace a levy approved by voters in 2018 that is set to expire this year.
  • The District is asking voters to authorize funding in the amount of $49.85 Million in 2021 and $54 Million in 2022. This is about 6.7 Million less than the District is legally authorized to collect. With this levy, the estimated combined local school tax rate would go down from $3.46 to $3.25 per $1,000 of assessed property value in the first year and $3.30 in the second.
  • The levy supports a wide range of programs and services, including CTE, mental health counselors, special education, safety and security, early childhood education and many more.
