More than 20 KEA members attended the KSD Board Work Session last night to support board member Russ Hanscom’s appeal to increase the filing of the school levy funding amount from $269 million to the full statutory amount of $307 million. Mr. Hanscom gave compelling reasons for increasing the filing amount:
- Per pupil expenditure in KSD is near the bottom of the 10 districts its size and close to the lowest in WA state. Raising the levy filing to $307 million will raise per pupil spending to within the state average.*
- Of the four surrounding districts, all have passed levies at full capacity with more than 60% of the voters approving.
