Vote Feb. 12
To keep up with aging buildings, rapidly growing enrollment and critical safety updates, Kennewick School District is proposing a school construction bond on February 12, 2019.
The bond will replace Kennewick High School and add more classrooms to Kamiakin and Southridge High schools, while also improving athletic facilities. Amistad and Ridge View Elementary schools will be replaced and a new elementary school will be added in a high-growth area.
Will school taxes increase? If the bond is approved, school taxes will increase by $.30 per $1,000 of assessed property value but the overall tax rate will be less than what you paid in 2017 or 2018 due to recent changes by the state in how schools are funded. Learn more...
