Mercer Island School District Levy Info
Mercer Islanders are committed to keeping our schools strong. A four year, replacement Maintenance & Operations Levy is being proposed for a community vote on February 13, 2018. This levy replaces one that was passed by Mercer Island voters in 2014.
This levy continues to provide 20% of the total funding required by the school district and 38% of the special education budget. This replacement levy pays for existing programs and teachers, beyond the state’s definition of basic education, that are no longer funded. It is essential to maintaining the high quality of Mercer Island Schools, a key reason people move to the Island.
The last levies were overwhelmingly approved by Mercer Island voters. When you receive your ballot January 26, 2018, please vote yes to keep our schools among the best in the state.
