The School Program and Operations levy proposed to voters in a special February election has officially been certified by Snohomish County as passing with 53.64% of voters approving the measure.
This 4-year replacement levy helps support many school programs and operations not funded by the State of Washington, including school safety and security, athletics & extracurricular activities, transportation, special education, student support programs, professional learning for staff, competitive pay for staff, instructional supplies and materials, and much more.
"Local funding for our schools is critical and I am grateful to the Monroe voters for their support of our students and schools," said Superintendent Fredrika Smith. "This levy will allow us to continue to provide the quality education our community expects for our children, which goes beyond the minimum funded by the state."
A huge thank you to our community for continuing to support our students!
