Dear South Kitsap Families: 

I am excited to begin my third year as Superintendent in the South Kitsap School District. Under the leadership of your School Board, and with the support of staff, families, and the community, South Kitsap School District will continue to follow the vision of nurturing growth, inspiring achievement, and building community. 

Our South Kitsap School District is financially healthy and stable, innovation is flourishing, and student enrollment is on the rise. Our students are thriving, thanks to the high-quality teaching and learning in our schools. Quality schools attract services, businesses, and families to our area and we are eager to continue to serve our community by educating the next generation of innovative thinkers. As our enrollment continues to grow, with more and more families recognizing everything that South Kitsap has to offer, we are working hard to keep up with those demands.

South Kitsap School District has two measures on the November 6 ballot. Proposition 1 is a Bond to construct a second high school in our community. Proposition 2 is a Capital Levy to address facility improvement projects, enhance safety and security, and add technology for learning across the district. The approval of both measures will keep the local tax rate at the same rate voters approved in 2017. We will be sending factual mailers to all residents and extensive information is available on our website. Please contact us with any questions at info@skschools.org. As with every election, your vote is your voice so make sure you are registered. 

South Kitsap School District has a proud history!  We will honor the past and embrace the future as we continue to meet the needs of our students. There is a lot to be proud of at SKSD and the unique opportunities that are available to our students are part of what makes South Kitsap such a special place. 

Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege, as well as, the responsibility of educating your child(ren)!  Best wishes to all of our students for a successful 2018-2019 school year!

Sincerely,

Karst Brandsma
Superintendent
