LEVY FACT #6

The extra-curricular and activities program is 100% dependent on levy dollars for its existence. The levy funds sports programs, including coaches, equipment, and event expenses. Co-curricular activities - music, band, cheerleading, clubs, and field trips throughout the school system - are supported by levy funds.

LEVY FACT #5

State education property taxes will increase beginning in 2018 by approximately $.086 per thousand. Based on recent changes to state law, the per thousand tax rate for the local Replacement Educational Programs and Operation Levy will decrease from $2.90 in 2017 to $1.50 in 2019. The result is an estimated net decrease of $0.54 per thousand from 2017 tax rates.

WESTWOOD'S TAMI SKILLINGSTAD IS WASHINGTON STATE ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL OF THE YEAR

After a thorough vetting process, including site visits, it was announced by AWMLP that our own Westwood Middle School Assistant Principal Tami Skillingstad has been named the State Assistant Principal of the Year. During the Westwood site visit, students, teachers and classified staff members were interviewed, as well as Principal Erika Burden and Ms. Skillingstad. Using components of the Leadership Framework as the foundation for the questions they asked, AWMLP Executive Committee members selected Tami as the stand-out leader. Our District and our students are extremely fortunate to have such a caring and accomplished leader as Ms. Skillingstad. Congratulations, Tami!

FACT #4 - Levy = learning and programs. Levy funds provide teachers and support staff (counselors, nurses, specialists) beyond those provided by state funding.
