New Spaces for Fall 2026

With approval of the bond, facility improvements would be completed by Fall 2026. That means today's kindergarten students would begin grade 3 in the new elementary schools.

Impact on Property Taxes

The bond request would cost taxpayers with a median priced home of $500,000 approximately $16 per month. 

Approval of the ballot question would result in a property tax increase beginning with taxes payable in 2024 and the debt service tax levies would remain in place for 22 years.

Your 2024 taxes will be based on the 2023 Estimated Market Value (EMV), which was provided on the “Notice of Valuation and Classification” mailed by your county in March 2023. You can also find your EMV by searching Washington County Property records.
