What you need to know about the “No New Tax” Bond Issue

  • Kent Schools “No New Tax” will NOT raise taxes for homeowners but will keep students safe and maintain our community’s investment in our schools. The issue appears on the March 17, 2020 ballot.
  • Bonds issued over 20 years ago to construct Stanton Middle School and renovate Roosevelt High School and Davey Elementary are maturing. Kent Schools is taking advantage of this opportunity to make needed improvements to all of our schools at NO new cost to our taxpayers.
