As a both a parent of a student in the Renton School District and a PTA member, I see first-hand how hard teachers and school staff are working to provide all children with a good education. We are all so fortunate to have such caring and committed professionals leading our students in classrooms and schools every day across our district. That’s why I’m voting yes on both measures for Renton Schools on the Feb. 9 ballot.
I know our schools could not continue to accomplish such great things without the financial support that each one of us can provide through this replacement levy.
Knowing that 26 cents of every dollar spent in every classroom—including books, computers, teacher pay, custodial services, and school buses—comes from this local levy support, it’s imperative that we do our part to help our local educators who are preparing our community’s children for a bright future.
Couple that with the fact that we can continue to provide this financial support without raising our own tax rates, and it’s a win-win for all of us.
I hope you will join me and mark your ballot “YES!” for both measures right now, and mail it in to continue to show our support for local education.
