Auburn School District Replacement Levy on February 13 Ballot

The Auburn School District board of directors unanimously approved placing a four-year Educational Programs and Operations Replacement Levy on the February 13 ballot.

The Educational Programs and Operations levy will replace the 2020 levy that expires in 2024.  This levy provides 14% of the ASD budget.  Funds from the levy are used for: all athletics and activities and transportation to these events; special education programs and transportation; staffing for positions underfunded by the state including nurses, safety officers, school resource officers, psychologists, librarians; and extended learning opportunities.

The levy will collect $51.8 million in 2025, $54.4 million in 2026, $57.1 million in 2027 and $60 million in 2028. The district will collect no more than $2.50 per $1,000 of assessed valuation in each of the levy years. The overall school tax rate will remain stable.
