This is John R. Berg's personal website for the stakeholders of the South Kitsap School District.
The Board has scheduled a public forum to discuss long-range capital projects for Wednesday, August 24, 2022. This will be similar to the one previously scheduled at Cedar Heights Middle School in June. For background information, see the report of the Facility Long-Range Planning Advisory Committee. Details about all of the Districts facilities are covered, together with recommendations for replacement, upgrades, etc.
The Board did not take any action towards putting a renewed capital levy on the ballot for 2023 tax collection. The Board's July 20th meeting was the last opportunity before the deadline to certify a proposal for the November 2022 ballot. The total tax rate for SK schools for 2023 taxes will most likely be around $2.25 / $1000, meaning a home assessed at $300,000 will pay about $675 in 2023, compared to $802 in 2022 (adjusting for a 10% annual increase in assessed value).
The downside for the District and students will be that there will not be additional funds for safety and security improvements to the school buildings. Elementary schools do not yet have cameras and most buildings do not have limited entrances for greater security.
