REPLACEMENT EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AND OPERATIONS LEVY AND REPLACEMENT TECHNOLOGY AND CAPITAL LEVY - February 8, 2022

On February 8, 2022, Marysville School District will ask voters to renew their commitment to students and schools through two replacement levies. The two levies continue support for the educational programs and services students currently receive and provide for the improvement and maintenance of the facilities where they learn and grow. The replacement levies have a combined lower tax rate reducing the burden of cost to taxpayers by .30 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value.
