Remember to Vote - February 11th

On or about January 21, 2020, ballots will be mailed to voters for the February 11th election for the purpose of replacing the current Shelton School District educational programs and operations levy, which expires December 31, 2020.

If passed, this levy will not impose a new tax in addition to what is currently in place, but will replace the expired tax.

The current levy expires December 31, 2020; the replacement levy would begin January 1, 2021.
Shelton School District will receive matching money (approximately $3 million per year) from ‘levy equalization’ -- but only if the levy passes.

The Replacement Levy provides about 8.5% of the district’s budget. These dollars support all or a part of many educational programs and services in addition to the maintenance of facilities.

The levy amount to be collected is as follows:

  • 2021 — $5,500,000 (Maximum of $2.50 per $1,000 assessed valuation)
  • 2022 — $5,500,000 (Maximum of $2.50 per $1,000 assessed valuation)
  • 2023 — $5,500,000 (Maximum of $2.50 per $1,000 assessed valuation)
