The state cut back school funding this past legislative session, so the Edmonds School District might ask voters to make up the difference, our neighbor site Lynnwood Today reports.
The district is considering the option of placing a four-year supplemental levy proposal on the August ballot. It would raise about $6.4 million the first year (the same amount the district is trying to cut from the budget.)
â€œAt this point the sense is that the state offered this tool to the voters as a temporary way of mitigating the significant impacts of reduced state funding. Rather than making a decision by not even putting it on the ballot, an August vote allows the parents and community to decide,â€ Edmonds School District Executive Director Marla Miller said.
