The Steilacoom Historical School District (SHSD) is running an election on February 11th to renew their maintenance and operations levy. This is NOT a new tax but a renewal of the existing levy.
The State only funds about 80% of education so school district must rely on local levies for about 20% of their operating funds. These funds are used for things like textbooks, transportation, special education, arts, athletics, technology, reduced class size and maintenance and operations.
Steilacoom Historical School District currently has the lowest rate in the County and that statistic will remain the same for the next four years. The Steilacoom Historical School District has an exceptional reputation and award winning schools. They create a safe and positive learning environment which generates above average test scores.
