Special election is next week for local school levies

Posted

Chimacum voters will cast ballots on a replacement levy next week to pay for teachers, programs and upkeep of local schools.

It’s one of four local school districts putting replacement levies on the ballot for the upcoming Special Election Tuesday, Feb. 9.

The Chimacum, Sequim, Queets-Clearwater and Quillayute Valley districts are seeking renewals of their levy that funds educational programs and operations. 

In Sequim, voters will also decide the fate of a second proposition to improve school facilities.

Ballots went out Jan. 20.

For Chimacum voters, the levy will raise $2.1 million for schools in 2022.

In Sequim, Prop. 1 will raise roughly $7.7 million annually.

In Quillayute Valley, the replacement levy will bring in $714,304 to pay for teachers, staff, programs and operations. And in the Queets-Clearwater School District, the levy means $75,000 for education programs, and maintenance and operation expenses. 

Chimacum has approximately 10,500 eligible voters, while roughly 380 voters in Jefferson County will vote on the Sequim ballot measures.

There are roughly 100 local votes for the Queets-Clearwater school proposition, and 150 or so registered voters for the Quillayute Valley School District levy.
