Has Lake Washington School District improved it's planning process?
Lake Washington School District has done very little dealing with overcrowding issues on the Sammamish Plateau. With a building moratorium in the City of Sammamish. Inglewood Middle School and Eastlake High School are nearing capacity.
How do Choice schools compare to Comprehensive High Schools?
We need a comprehensive high school not another choice high school. Choice schools only roughly serve about 500 students and they don't often serve the underprivileged.
I frequently hear the statement "No Tax Rate Increase". Will my taxes stay the same if the District's levy passes?
For example, a median value house valued at $700,000 in 2017 appreciated by $100,000 and was assessed at $800,000 in 2018. If the rate was $3.16 per thousand in both 2017 and 2018, the homeowner's taxes were $2,212 in 2017 and $2,528 in 2018 - a tax increase of $316, even though there was "No Tax Rate Increase." So yes, property taxes will increase even if the tax rate stays the same.
State taxes also will be increasing by $0.70 per thousand to pay for schools. In 2018, the homeowners of the $800,000 house will have to pay an additional $560 for increased State taxes under the McCleary Plan. They will also pay another $316 as the value of their house increase and school taxes increased. Altogether, the owners of the $800,000 house will see their tax bill increase by $876 in 2018 to pay for schools. And remember that State taxes are scheduled to increase to $3.60 per thousand in 2022, if not sooner or higher.
King County will be mailing 2018 tax bills on February 16, 2018 - so voters will not see their 2018 tax increase until after the February 13, 2018 election.
When your ballot arrives, Please vote NO on LWSD Propositions 1, 2, and 3. Then mail or put in ballot drop box it in by February 13!
These Propositions are the wrong plan at the wrong time.
