The Olympia School District has one measure on the February 8, 2022 Special Election ballot: a proposed four-year Technology and Safety Replacement Levy.
The levy would raise an estimated $52.4 million over four years (2023-2026) to help pay for increased student access to technology, as well as safety projects districtwide.
The proposed levy is not a new tax. The measure would replace an expiring four-year technology and safety levy approved by voters in 2018 and adds safety and technology resources.
To learn more specifics about the levy, visit a Technology and Safety Replacement Levy Election information page on the Olympia School District website. The page includes a link to an informational video about the proposed levy.
