On April 23, 2019, Hockinson voters will decide whether to approve two School District levies.

One is a partial replacement of an existing levy. The other is a new levy, similar to ones from 2009 to 2016.

Please take a few moments to learn about these requests on our Levy Information page.

Hockinson board addresses levy request Hockinson logo

Greetings from the School Board.

On Feb. 19 our Board held a special meeting to approve two levy resolutions for the April 23 election ballot. One is a partial replacement levy, and the other is a new capital levy. The amounts we requested are the same as the levies that failed to achieve the 50 percent margin needed to pass in the Feb. 12 election.

Our district’s needs have not changed since February. The partial replacement levy is needed because the state does not fully cover basic educational costs, which include a portion of employee salaries and benefits, as well as most of our extra-curricular programs, which have always been funded by local levy dollars. 

Hockinson board approves levy request for April ballot school bus

The Hockinson School Board approved two levy resolutions for the April 23 election ballot during its Feb. 19 special meeting. One is a partial replacement levy, and the other is a new capital levy.

The requests are identical to the ones that received 47.46 percent and 46.06 percent “yes” votes, respectively, in the Feb. 12 election. They needed 50 percent plus one vote to pass.
