On Feb. 13 voters will decide whether to support local levy or bond measures for their school district. This year’s election is the first school districts have run since state lawmakers passed a comprehensive bill in 2017 that invests record amounts in schools ($7.3 billion over four years) while also overhauling how our state pays for education.
Here at EEN we reviewed all the information each school district made available to the public about their respective ballot measures, then compiled that into our easy-to-use “Ballot Measure Overviews.” We focused on providing voters details about what programs, services and facilities are funded, how much it all costs, and what that means for local taxpayers.

Note: Some districts provided more information than others about the total impact on taxpayers from local plus state property taxes for education. If you want more details or have additional questions, we encourage you to contact your local school district.
