Every Vote Counts

From King County’ Election site:

Proposition No. 1 General Obligation Bonds – $56,200,000

Here is a link to the site if you want to see for yourself.

I support the school bond and encourage you to vote yes.  Your vote could make the difference.

Snoqualmie Valley School District Podcast?

March 13, 2011

I just found out that the Snoqualmie Valley School District has a pod cast. What a great idea for people who want to know about our school district but can not make the board meetings. You can learn more about the podcasts at http://www.svsd410.org/podcasts/

Happy listening.

Snoqualmie Valley School District Bond Failing?

May 19, 2007

Snoqualmie Valley School District 410 bond still appears to be failing. 

The latest update from the King County Department of Elections shows that the $209,000,000 school bond is failing for the second time by missing the 60% super majority required for passage.  With 58% of the vote in the approve column, it looks pretty similar to the February Election when it also received a 58% approval from the voters.  While we will not know the final results until the election is certified and votes are still coming in it look unlikely to pass this round.

If you are interested in following this issue, there is a pretty active Yahoo group dedicated to discussing the school bond.  The big question is what’s next if it doesn’t pass?  The district can not submit another bond to voters until spring of 2008, according to the  School District Bond Brochure. 

Will the board submit the same proposition for a third time, or are some changes that can be made to help it pass?  What will the board do next?  What do you think they should do?
