Levy 2020 update: thank you, voters!

A Message from Superintendent Greg Baker 

On behalf of our students, school board and all staff in Bellingham Public Schools, I want to extend a big thank you to our Bellingham community, which has voted to renew both of our expiring levies.

Our upcoming replacement operations levy supports teaching and learning and also funds other basic operations and programs such as safety, Special Education, English Language Learner and highly capable programs and more. The technology capital levy is a fundamental part of our instructional program that pays for classroom technologies, digital citizenship education, professional development and much more.

We are extremely grateful to our Bellingham voters! As of 9 p.m.  Feb. 11, 2020, our two replacement levies are currently passing with over 69% approval.

Thank you to the hundreds of parents, community and staff volunteers who worked hard in support of these replacement levies. The school board and I extend our thanks to each of you.

Greg Baker
