Building Better Together

School districts rely on voter-approved funding measures to bridge the gap between what the state funds and what it costs to support our students.

Thanks to the past generosity of our community, funding measures allowed us to provide technology to all Northshore students, make field improvements, install security cameras in schools across the district, begin construction on the new concert hall at Inglemoor and employ classified and certificated staff above what the state pays for.

 

Northshore Invests: Feb. 8, 2022 Ballot Measures

During the Oct. 11, 2021 board meeting, the Northshore School Board approved a resolution to place three funding measures on the Feb. 8, 2022 ballot to help us continue our work to Build Better Together: modernizing schools, sustaining technology, and increasing opportunities. Below is the combined tax rate and information on each measure.
