    Past Ballot Measures & Projects

    To reduce overcrowding and address aging facilities

    The state does not provide funding for construction of new schools to accommodate student growth and provides limited funding for rebuilding aging facilities. Local districts are responsible for raising their own money and must use two primary sources for funding construction: Bonds and/or Capital Projects Levies.

    Due to rapid enrollment growth Lake Washington School District has run a number of ballot measures* since 2010 in an effort to reduce overcrowding and address aging facilities. In addition, the district has also implemented short-term solutions such as boundary changes, program shifts, and the addition of portables at schools. LWSD still has critical capacity needs that must be addressed.

    *Bonds require 60% or more to pass. Levies require 50% or more to pass
