Rate will be same as current one

We have the opportunity to invest in our children and in our future with the Everett School District operation levy and capital bond. This investment will help prepare our children for the future which starts with a great education.

Proposition No. 1 is a general operation levy which comprises about 23% of the general fund. These dollars help pay for many necessary things including books, classroom materials, programs designed to increase graduation rates and even more challenging classes for the kids. This levy replaces an expiring levy and is not a new tax.

Proposition No. 2 is a Capital Bond for building projects including modernizing several existing schools, building a new elementary school, a new high school, upgrading technology, building systems and security improvements. The combined rate for both propositions is projected to be the same rate as we are paying in 2013.

Just as our parents and grandparents invested in us, we can now invest in our children and grandchildren.

I am voting for both the levy and the capital bond and encourage everyone to invest in our kids and our future by voting yes for Kids!

Thank you!

Terry Ryan
