Bonds vs. Levies - What is the Difference?

Did you know that Washington State provides very little funding for the maintenance, repairs, or replacements of our school buildings? That is why we ask the community to consider bonds and capital project levies - to ensure that every student - no matter what school they go to - has equal access to safe, modern learning spaces. 

But what’s the difference between bonds and levies? We often say “bonds are for building, levies are for learning,” but it’s a little more complex than that. Take a moment to see how bonds and capital levies are both part of our long-range plan to address our highest facility needs throughout the district.
