WS Valley School District Seeks M&O Levy Passage

The White Salmon Valley School District will be asking for a slight increase in its replacement maintenance and operations levy on the February 14 ballot.  The district is asking for $2.78 million dollars in 2017-18, an increase of $150,000 from this year, and then increasing by $50,000 each of the following two years.  District Superintendent Jerry Lewis says the increase will cover a variety of funding needs, including hiring a full-time English Language Learners teacher to support students in kindergarten through eighth grade, providing professional district development, supporting sixth grade outdoor school and the K-12 after-school program, and funding the music program for instrument repair and replacements.  Property tax rates for the levy are projected at $2.52 per $1,000 dollars of assessed value for the life of the levy, up from $2.42 this year, but that number is down from the $2.61 projected when the current levy was approved three years ago.
