||APPROVE SCHOOL BUS LEVY
Ballots must be postmarked or received at city drop-box locations by Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
The election will includes a school bus levy. For more information view the district's Levy Fact Sheet (Spanish).
The school bus levy is needed for student safety, service and stewardship. Our school bus levy will:
- Improve student SAFETY with bus technology and newer, safer buses to replace an aging fleet;
- Provide school bus SERVICE to meet growing transportation needs for students with special needs or who are homeless; support more opportunities for students as defined in The Bellingham Promise, including an improved high school schedule and Promise Buses for field trips and educational programs; and
- Foster good STEWARDSHIP of public funds and our environment by purchasing energy efficient buses and encouraging more students to ride the bus, walk or bike to school.
