LWSD measures will have positive effect | Letter

The proposed measures prioritize overcrowding, education, safety, technology and maintenance.

As a Lake Washington School District parent, I’m supporting the three school district measures now before voters: an education programs and operations levy, plus a bond and capital levy.

These proposals prioritize our schools’ most urgent needs — overcrowding, education, safety, technology and maintenance — while reducing our local tax rate.

The bond provides more classroom space to help relieve overcrowding. The levies supply the funding needed to maintain the district’s excellent educational programs and technology, improve facilities and fields, and keep students safe.

Our district is one of the fastest growing in the state and that growth is projected to continue. The bond will provide more classroom space to accommodate an increasing number of students and relieve school overcrowding.

Having good schools and facilities will have a positive effect on our neighborhoods. Better schools help build a stronger community, which improves our quality of life and keeps our neighborhoods desirable. If you want to learn more, visit www.lwsd.org.

I invite Lake Washington School District voters to join me in voting yes for our schools Feb. 13.

Melissa Stone,

Kirkland
