Capital Levy 2018

In November 2018, South Kitsap voters approved a $21 Million Capital Projects Levy focused on three main areas: safety & security, identified capital improvements, and technology for instruction. The school construction bond on the same ballot was not approved. The majority of the projects detailed in the Capital Levy have been completed and the remainder will be completed by fall 2023. The levy taxes were collected over four years and expired December 31, 2022. 

Progress on the projects is shared regularly with the school board, on the district website, and publicly in the Community Connections Mailer that is delivered to households several times each year. A sample of the projects in each category is shown below.
