Riverview School District No. 407

Proposition No. 2 
Replacement Technology and Capital Projects Levy 

The Board of Directors of Riverview School District No. 407 adopted Resolution No. 21-05 concerning technology and capital projects levies. This proposition authorizes acquiring technology and equipment, including classroom computers; repairs to building systems, additional portable classroom space and safety and security upgrades; and authorizes the following excess levies for such purposes on all taxable property within the District: 

Collection Year

Estimated Levy


Assessed Value

Levy Amount
2023 $0.64  $3,800,000 
2024 $0.61  $3,800,000 
2025 $0.58  $3,800,000 
2026 $0.55   $3,800,000   

Should this proposition be approved?



Passage of Proposition No. 2 would replace an expiring levy and allow the levy of $3,800,000 in property taxes within Riverview School District for collection each year in the years 2023 through 2026.  This levy, in accordance with Resolution #21-05, would be used to pay for learning technology (software licensing, student devices, classroom upgrades), enhance school safety and network infrastructure, sustain necessary technology staffing, provide training related to the integration of technology, support ongoing maintenance and building improvements, and shall make other capital project expenditures as found necessary by the Board of Directors.


These taxes would be collected over the 2022-2023 through 2026-2027 school years and deposited in the District’s Capital Projects Fund (technology) for such improvements to meet current and future educational programs for its students.  If authorized by the voters, and based on projected assessed valuation information, estimated levy rates per $1,000 of assessed value would be $0.64 (2023 collection), $0.61 (2024 collection), $0.58 (2025 collection) and $0.55 (2026 collection).   The exact levy rate shall be adjusted based upon the actual assessed value of the property within the District at the time of the levy.


Exemptions from taxes may be available to certain homeowners.  To determine if you qualify, call the King County Assessor at 206-296-7300.

Approve Prop No.2 - Renew Our Commitment and Support a Quality Education for Our Students

Technology plays an increasingly important role in our classrooms. The state does not provide any direct funding for technology in schools, so the Riverview School District must continue funding through the levy process. This four-year Replacement Technology and Capital Projects Levy will replace the current levy which expires in 2022.

This levy provides replacement and upgraded student-issued devices, learning software, classroom modernizations, technology support staffing, and infrastructure upgrades. Additionally, this levy supports ongoing building improvements and maintenance.

Approve - Not a New Tax Prop No 2. is a four-year replacement levy for the current levy which expires at the end of 2022. Support  this levy, invest in the future, and continue supporting our local schools!

These cap levy items should come out of the General Fund. If salaries were not so bloated this would be possible.


These levies should be rejected. There should be no tax measures whatsoever on the ballot in February. February is the lowest voter turnout election of the year. Understandably. Most citizens are just learning that there are levies to vote on - again. We just had the holidays. Citizens have voting fatigue. And, importantly, citizens won't even receive their property tax bills for the year until a month later in March. How convenient.


In the interest of high voter participation, these important, large tax measures (which affect all property owners and renters in their rents) should be only on the November Election. It is irresponsible for the district to propose property tax measures a month before voters see their property tax bills.


The state will never be able to fulfill its constitutional obligation of fully-funding schools so long as local districts are allowed to spend more than the ample provision the state provides. Until that changes, citizens need to reject these local levies like the ones before you today. More details at

Riverview students have opportunities to use modern, up-to-date technology throughout the district, thanks to the ongoing support of our community. The Technology and Capital Projects replacement levy is needed so students can continue to meet K-12 technology standards, while remaining competitive with our surrounding districts. In addition, properly maintained school facilities give students safe spaces and classrooms for learning and engagement. This levy will replace an expiring levy. Vote Yes for Riverview!

In 2019-2020, per pupil expenditures (including capital outlays and interest on debt) for the district were already at $15,642. That's above tuition and books at many universities let alone most private K-12 schools.

In 2018, because of the McCleary Decision, state legislators pumped billions more dollars into our public schools, largely from increased property taxes. There is no amount of money monopoly school districts will be satisfied with. Citizens are crying uncle. Enough!
