The state funding we receive does not cover the full cost of a school bus equipped for our use. And, similar to the rest of K-12 education, the state has not consistently funded school bus replacement during the last 20 years. Only partial funding is provided to replace school buses, and there is not funding to cover growing transportation needs. School districts around the state have responded by requesting transportation levies and by using general funds to purchase buses.

Please visit the Bellingham Public Schools website to learn more about this important levy, or visit the 'Links' section of our 'Contacts' page for more information.
