Proposition No. 3
Renewal Capital Projects (Technology) Levy

The Board of Directors of Northshore School District No. 417 adopted Resolution No. 764 concerning a proposition for capital levies. To ensure all students have access to technology to prepare for careers of tomorrow, modernize technology systems, and train students and staff, the District shall levy the following excess levies in place of an expiring levy on all taxable property within the District:


Levy Rate/$1,000
Assessed Value












all as provided in Resolution No. 764. Should this proposition be approved?



Passage of Proposition No. 3 would allow the levy of $15,500,000 in property taxes within Northshore School District No. 417 for collection in 2019, the levy of $15,500,000 for collection in 2020, the levy of $15,500,000 for collection in 2021, and the levy of $15,500,000 for collection in 2022, to replace an expiring levy and to pay for technology improvements and meet the current and future educational programs for its students, such levies to be made for four years for collection in the years from 2019 through 2022.  In accordance with Resolution No. 764 approving this proposition, these taxes would pay for enhancing infrastructure, acquiring hardware, licensing software, and implementing online applications and training related to the installation of the foregoing, and the application and upgrading of technology systems for operations and instruction, including the ongoing fees for online applications, subscriptions, or software licenses, and ongoing training for students and staff related to the installation and integration of these products or services.  If authorized by the voters and based on projected assessed valuation information, estimated levy rates per $1,000 of assessed value would be $0.51 (2019 collection); $0.50 (2020 collection); $0.48 (2021 collection); and $0.47 (2022 collection).

Vote Yes to ensure our community commitment to provide Northshore students the technology needed for success. Technology, like buildings, is not funded through state and federal taxes.

Our world and the technology needed to master it are ever-changing. This renewal technology levy provides the infrastructure, equipment and access our students and teachers need to thrive in a technological world.

We need to provide students with access to computing devices when and where they need them. Technology gives our students the ability to learn, practice and grow relevant skills that they will use in the workforce of today and tomorrow.  All students, regardless of economic background, deserve access to the learning tools and skills for success.

We need to update our web-based communications systems to ensure effective two-way communication between teachers and parents.

We need to support our teachers by providing them the training they need to teach and lead students the responsible and appropriate use of technology.

Students, teachers and our community benefit from ongoing training which ensures the safety of our students and our quality of life in this technological age.

Vote Yes to continue our community’s legacy of supporting quality education in Northshore.
