Tax Dollars at Work

It takes a village to support to South Kitsap School District. We appreciate the partnership and support of the South Kitsap community as we work together to nurture growth, inspire achievement, and build community. All South Kitsap schools are more than 30 years old and require constant maintenance and repairs to keep students and staff warm, safe, and dry.  
 
This page contains examples of repairs, improvements, and projects funded by taxpayer dollars. The projects may be capital levy funded or part of the South Kitsap School District general operating budget. SKSD does not have an existing capital bond.
