Starting Friday, Edmonds voters will begin receiving mail-in ballots for the Feb. 9 Edmonds School District Replacement School Programs and Operation Levy.

“This measure is not additional funding —  it is what we need in order to continue to operate each day,” School Board President Ann McMurray said. “It directly supports the learning and teaching in each classroom across our district in Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, Woodway, and unincorporated Snohomish County.”

The levy directly funds the classroom and support programs, school district officials note.

“The replacement levy represents 20 cents of every dollar spent to provide and support student learning,” School Board Vice President Susan Phillips said.

Superintendent Nick Brossoit added: “This is a supportive community, and this is an important issue. This measure will allow us to continue the work we need to do in our schools. We appreciate the public’s interest in learning more about this measure and encourage people to vote .”
