Building For Excellence School Construction Bond Measure November 5, 2019
Thank You Voters!
As of Nov. 8, 2019, the School Construction measure is passing. We received more than 70% approval from voters; and nearly 27,000 ballots have been counted. We need a total of 18,578 ballots, and 60% approval to be successful. King County Elections office will count additional ballots through Nov. 26.
Renton School District voters overwhelmingly approved an important ballot measure to support student learning on the November 5, 2019 ballot. Even with approval of the measure, tax rates for district property owners will not increase.
Building for Excellence Bonds to Improve, Construct and Renovate School Facilities will allow for important projects at nearly every school in the district including:
- construction of a much-needed additional elementary school in the fast-growing northeastern (Highlands/Sunset/Hazen High) area of the district
- additional science classrooms at high schools
- renovations and upgrades to other schools
- roofs and boilers
- safety and security
- school playground and athletic fields
- and much more

What will the measure cost?
Because of improved assessed property values and the many additional families and businesses that have moved into the Renton School District boundaries, this measure will not increase tax rates.
That means the owner of a median priced home of $400,000 will have saved more than $572 per year in Renton Schools property taxes since 2017.
