School board to vote on $3.6 million tech levy request

The Vashon school board is expected to ask voters to renew a $3.6 million levy for technology and capital upgrades, a measure that would come before voters on Feb. 14.

The five-member board will vote on the proposal at its next meeting, scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 15. Superintendent Michael Soltman said the four-year levy would bring in $900,000 a year, the same amount the district currently receives for technology and capital projects.

Soltman said it would cover the costs of items now considered essential at the district, including several salaries and needed upgrades.

“It’s our lifeblood,” he said. “It’s every bit as critical as the maintenance and operations levy.”
