School District Ballot Issues

Depending on where you live, you may be voting on the below school district ballot measures.

Nooksack Valley Schools

Nooksack Valley School District Proposition #2019-1

Vote YES to Upgrade Nooksack Valley Schools

Nooksack Valley School District #506 has proposed a $29.7 million bond to build and renovate numerous outdated and overcrowded school buildings. Enrollment in Nooksack schools has increased by 16 percent in just four years, leaving classrooms overcrowded and hundreds of students stuck in portables without water or bathrooms. The new property tax would cost the owner of a median $324,000 home approximately $400 per year. However, changes to the state's education tax formulas mean that overall property taxes will drop significantly. Vote yes to ensure that every Nooksack Valley student has a safe and modern building in which to learn!

Ferndale School District

Ferndale School District Proposition #2019-2

Vote YES to Upgrade Ferndale Schools

Ferndale School District 502 has proposed a $112 million bond for capital projects. The district would use the funds to build a new Ferndale High School and make important security, heating, roofing, and water improvements throughout the district. The estimated $0.92 property tax increase per $1,000 of assessed value would cost the owner of a median $369,000 home approximately $339. Vote yes on Proposition 1 to ensure all Ferndale students have safe and comfortable facilities where they have the best opportunity to learn!
