Educational Programs and Operation Levy

Passage of Proposition No. 1 would allow Orient School District to levy taxes for a four-year period to pay for expenses of educational programs and operation that are not fully funded by the State of Washington. These expenses include but are not limited to: teachers; support staff; materials, supplies and operating costs (MSOC); extracurricular activities; transportation; insurance; food service; technology, security, and building maintenance and operation. Further information is available on the District’s website at

The proposed four-year levy would authorize the collection of taxes to provide up to $180,000 in 2025, $190,000 in 2026, $200,000 in 2027 and $210,000 in 2028. The tax levy rate required to produce these levy amounts is estimated to be $1.00 per $1,000 of assessed value. The exact tax levy rate and amounts to be collected may be adjusted based upon the actual assessed value of the taxable property within the District and the limitations imposed by State law at the time of levy. Exemptions from taxes may be available, call your county assessor for more information.
