Replacement Educational Programs and Operations Levy
Washington state is making great strides toward funding basic education but there is still a need to raise money locally to pay for staffing, programs and equipment that the state is not funding. The Tahoma Educational and Programs Levy is a replacement levy that helps fill the gap between state funding and the needs of Tahoma students. We want all students to receive an education that goes well beyond the basics and helps them to be Future Ready.
Replacement Technology Levy
It’s hard to imagine a world without computers: no smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, or internet. Now, imagine living in the real world but not having access to those things. That’s why we need to renew the Tahoma technology levy. The levy pays for computers, software, network equipment, and people to provide support and training to about 9,000 students and staff. The proposed levy is the same amount as the one that it would replace. Our community has supported technology levies consistently for more than a decade.
It has been 15 years since Tahoma School District asked voters for a levy to buy new buses. Since then, the district has grown by more than 2,000 students and opened a new high school. It’s time to buy more buses.
