Opinion

Thanks, Tuwkila, for support

On Feb. 14, Tukwila voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition 1, Replacement of the Expiring School Programs and Operation Levy for the Tukwila School District.

The current public school funding model requires local citizens to provide financial support for schools through their local taxes. This means that it is essential that citizens believe in and support their school system.  The citizens of Tukwila have continuously shown their support by consistently passing the district’s operation levies. The levy provides 27 percent of the district’s general budget.

We are very thankful for the strong support that this community gives to our students—the future leaders of this community and the world.

Thank you, Tukwila, for saying “Yes” to schools one more time.

 

Ethelda Burke,

superintendent,

Tukwila School Distric
