Edmonds School District bond, levy passing in early returns

Feb 12, 2014

The two propositions put to voters in the Edmonds School District were passing as of Wednesday afternoon.

In early returns from Tuesday night, Prop. 1 had earned a 62.88 percent yes vote, with 37.12 voting no.

Prop. 2 had earned 61.16 yes votes, with 38.84 voting no.

Prop. 1 is the replacement school programs and operations levy that would replace the expiring levy to support the district's general fund. It would help keep additional teachers for smaller class sizes, pay for textbooks and instructional materials, student transportation and other activities.

Prop. 2 was the capital construction bond, which would help the district upgrade and repair facilities. Projects included reducing the class size for students in grades 1-6 at various schools, adding classrooms to Edmonds-Woodway, modernizing several elementary schools, and replacing several others.

Just over 19,000 voted in the Edmonds School District election, with a 29 percent voter turnout.

Election results are updated daily by the County and will be certified on Feb. 25.
