Passage of Proposition No. 1 would allow Kent School District No. 415 to renew an expiring levy for educational programs and operations by levying $76,250,000 in property taxes for collection in 2023, and $76,250,000 for collection in 2024.

In accordance with Resolution No. 1614 approving this proposition, these taxes would be deposited into the District’s General Fund and used to pay for day-to-day school operations to meet student needs not funded by the State, such as teachers, nurses, school security, and other critical staff and program costs not fully funded by the state funding formulas.

Based on projected assessed valuation information, the District estimates tax rates of $1.88 per $1,000 of assessed value, for 2023 collection; and $1.86 per $1,000 of assessed value, 2024 collection.
