School district will host meetings on possible tax levy

POULSBO — The North Kitsap School District will host two community meetings regarding the school district budget and a potential supplemental property tax levy.

Meetings are Oct. 4 in the Kingston High School library and Oct. 11 in the North Kitsap High School library. Both meetings begin at 7 p.m.

The district cut more than $2 million from its 2011-12 budget, resulting in layoffs throughout the district.

The district currently has a four-year school support levy, approved by 72 percent of North Kitsap voters in February 2010. The levy taxes homeowners a maximum of $1.96 per $1,000 of property value; the number can fluctuate with changes in property valuation assessments.

A maximum of $13.6 million can be collected in 2012 from the current levy. The levy expires in 2014 and was a renewal of a 2006 levy, which expired in 2010.
