The Northshore School District Bond/Levy measure distributed a mailer to all area households recently. Please note that there was an error on Page 5 of that informational mailer about the Capital Projects bond, saying that our tax rate is per month, but the tax rate – like all tax rates – is calculated per year.
Here is the correct information. If approved, the Capital Projects Bond would decrease our yearly local tax rate.
For a house valued at $600,000, you currently pay a rate of $1.78 per $1,000 of assessed valuation or $1,068 a year.
Under the proposed bond, you would pay $1.59 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, or $954 a year.
The capital bond is one of three propositions that the NSD has on the Feb. 13 ballot that will support our students and schools. To learn more visit https://www.nsd.org/.
