School board says levy bid coming in February


November 13, 2019

The Goldendale School Board will put a new school district levy on the Feb. 11, 2020, election ballot.

The board passed the levy resolution on Oct. 21. The levy, if approved would provide for $2,500 per student at a rate of approximately $2.31 per thousand dollars of assessed property value.

In a statement announcing the levy intention, the board said, “The state of Washington does not adequately or fully fund public education. This means that the Goldendale School District relies on local tax funds to support approximately 14 percent of its budget. The February 11, 2020, ballot measure replaces the current Maintenance and Operation levy that our community voters approved in 2018.”
