VOTE YES FOR KIDS
The Citizens Team for Mukilteo Schools is driven by a single goal: to do our part in making our schools and community a better place for all.
2020 CAPITAL BOND
The Mukilteo School District Board of Directors will propose to voters a capital bond in February 2020.
Capital Bond Overview
The bond package is $240 million and would fund projects for six years, 2021 through 2026. The most important things the bond will provide is more space and classrooms! In our quickly growing region, Mukilteo schools are all at or over capacity now. We'll need more space for more kids.
We also need our existing schools to last, so the bond will fund HVAC, flooring, plumbing and roofing updates to maintain aging systems.
The bond provides needed safety and security improvements, including emergency communication systems and integrated locks at all schools so that teachers and students can lock their doors from inside the classroom in an emergency. Find more details on the Mukilteo School District bond website. Specific projects can be found on the district's capital bond projects page.
Tax Rate Implications
If the bond proposal passes, the total state and local tax rate is projected to increase by 9.4 cents per $1,000 of Assessed Value. This is the equivalent of $47 for a $500,000 home.
