Educational Programs and Operations Levy

Vote yes for kids on Feb. 13, 2024

The Battle Ground Public Schools board of directors decided unanimously on Nov. 13 to put a capital levy before voters in the February 13, 2024, special election. The capital levy would pay to:

  • Improve roofs, heating and cooling systems and lighting

  • Improve security and replace older technology

  • Build or upgrade spaces in which students learn construction trades, culinary skills and health sciences, enhancing their ability to get jobs that pay well after they graduate.

 

The capital levy is a positive step toward getting the most out of our investment in schools. 

Same tax rate as expired bond measure

If the levy is approved, it would take the place of a bond measure that expires at the end of December 2023 at the same rate.

  • Expiring bond measure rate: $0.44 per $1,000 of assessed property value

  • Three-year capital levy rate: $0.44 per $1,000 of assessed property value
