Levy Cliff Extended – What’s next?


We have good news coming out of Olympia this week, the levy cliff has been extended!  This means we will be able to collect our voter approved levy funds for another year.  Thank you for all your calls and emails to our representatives.  Your voice made a difference!

While we want to celebrate this victory we also need to keep in mind that full funding has yet to be figured out and we will need to keep fighting until the state fulfills its paramount duty to fully fund education.

Below is a list of upcoming forums to help you stay involved and find out next steps for the education funding battle.
