There’s a gap between what the state funds school districts, and what we need to support our students, that’s why BSD will ask voters to consider renewing two levies in the February 8, 2022 election.  

For example, the state only funds three full-time nurses for our district. Through levy funding, we employ 23 nurses to keep our students healthy and safe. Funding from the EP&O levy also covers costs associated with mental health counselors and supports in our schools as well as student opportunities including orchestra, band, elementary art, and athletics. The EP&O levy helps us ensure the wellbeing of the students in our care.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
