Initial Special Election results show 2022 Education Levy is passing by 60%

Dear Edmonds School District families,

The initial ballot count shows the 2022 Education Levy is passing by 60.53%. This is great news for our district. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote, and all those who volunteered to share the importance of this levy, including the Citizens for Schools committee.

The Education Levy is the second largest revenue source for the Edmonds School District, making up about 15% of the budgeted general fund. The renewal of the levy provides funding for the next four years.

The School Board of Directors was very intentional in setting a levy amount that allows us to continue to provide the programs and services that our students, staff, family and community have come to expect, while also maintaining a level tax rate.

“We are committed to be fiscally prudent and we appreciate our community’s longstanding history of supporting our schools,” said Dr. Nancy Katims, School Board President.

The passing of this levy allows our district to provide each and every student we serve with the best educational opportunities to set them up for success.

With great appreciation,

Dr. Gustavo Balderas
