BAINBRIDGE ISLAND SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 303
KITSAP COUNTY, WASHINGTON

RESOLUTION NO. 2-16-17

A RESOLUTION of the Board of Directors of Bainbridge Island School District
No. 303, Kitsap County, Washington, providing for the submission to the
qualified electors of the District at a special election to be held on
February 14, 2017, of a proposition authorizing a tax levy to be made annually
for four years in the amounts of $2,200,000 in 2017 for collection in 2018,
$2,200,000 in 2018 for collection in 2019, $2,200,000 in 2019 for collection
in 2020, and $2,200,000 in 2020 for collection in 2021 for technology and
telecommunication purposes.

WHEREAS, the Bainbridge Island School District No. 303, Kitsap County, Washington
(the “District”), for the past three years has had in effect a Capital Projects Fund tax levy; and

WHEREAS, the District’s instructional programs and the existing condition of school
facilities require the District to modernize school facilities through the acquisition, installation
and improvement of computer technology and telecommunication systems, equipment and
facilities, all as more particularly defined and described in Section 2 herein (collectively,
the “Projects”); and

WHEREAS, calendar year 2017 is the last year of collection of the District’s current
three-year Capital Projects Fund tax levy, which was authorized pursuant to Resolution No. 2-
13-14, adopted by the Board on November 14, 2013, and a special election held on February 11,
2014; and

WHEREAS, with the expiration of the District’s current three-year Capital Projects Fund
tax levy, it appears certain that the money in the District’s Capital Projects Fund for the school
years 2017-2018, 2018-2019, 2019-2020, 2020-2021, and 2021-2022 will be insufficient to
permit the District to pay expenses of the Projects during such school years, and that it is
necessary that a replacement (also known as renewal) excess tax levy of $2,200,000 be made in
2017 for collection in 2018, $2,200,000 be made in 2018 for collection in 2019, $2,200,000 be
made in 2019 for collection in 2020, and $2,200,000 be made in 2020 for collection in 2021 for
the District’s Capital Projects Fund to provide the money required to meet those expenses; and
WHEREAS, the District’s proposed four-year Capital Projects Fund tax levy authorized
in this resolution provides for approximately the same purpose as the District’s expiring threeyear
Capital Projects Fund tax levy.

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 303, KITSAP COUNTY, WASHINGTON,
as follows:

Section 1. The Board hereby finds that the best interests of the District’s students and
other inhabitants require the District to carry out and accomplish the Projects as hereinafter
provided.

Section 2. The Board hereby finds that the Projects to be paid for with proceeds from
the excess property tax levies authorized herein are more particularly defined and described as
follows:

(a) Modernize the District’s school facilities through (i) acquisition and installation of
computer technology systems and facilities, including, but not limited to, computers and related
equipment, (ii) improvements to telecommunications systems and technology for classroom
instruction and student learning, and (iii) other technology and telecommunication improvements
and upgrades, all as deemed necessary and advisable by the Board and permitted by law. The
foregoing technology equipment, improvements and upgrades shall be part of the District’s
integrated technology systems and facilities for teaching and learning.

(b) Pay costs associated with implementing the foregoing, including, but not limited
to: acquiring, constructing and installing hardware and licensing software, online applications
and training related to the installation of the foregoing, furniture, equipment, fixtures and
accessories, all as deemed necessary and advisable by the Board. Such costs shall also include,
but are not limited to, the ongoing fees for online applications, subscriptions, or software
licenses, including upgrades and incidental services, and ongoing training related to the
installation and integration of these products and services, all as deemed necessary and advisable
by the Board and permitted by law. The hardware, software or applications shall be an integral
part of the District’s technology systems and facilities for teaching and learning.

(c) Pay incidental costs incurred in connection with carrying out and accomplishing
the foregoing. Such costs shall be deemed part of the Projects and shall include, but are not
limited to: payments for fiscal and legal expenses; establishing and funding accounts; necessary
and related engineering, planning, consulting, permitting, inspection and testing costs;
administrative and relocation expenses; site improvement; on and off-site utilities improvements;
and other similar activities or purposes, all as deemed necessary and advisable by the Board and
permitted by law. The Projects, or any portion or portions thereof, shall be acquired or made
insofar as is practicable with available money and in such order of time as shall be deemed
necessary and advisable by the Board. The Board shall determine the application of available
money between the various parts of the Projects so as to accomplish, as near as may be, all of the
Projects. The Board shall determine the exact order, extent and specifications for the Projects.

Section 3. The Auditor of Kitsap County, Washington, as ex officio Supervisor of
Elections (the “Auditor”), is requested to call and conduct a special election in the District on
February 14, 2017, for the purpose of submitting to the voters of the District the proposition of
whether a replacement excess property tax levy for the Capital Projects Fund shall be made
annually for four years commencing in 2017 for collection in 2018 on all of the taxable property
within the District of $2,200,000, the estimated dollar rate of tax levy required to produce such
an amount being $0.32 per $1,000 of assessed value, in 2018 for collection in 2019 of
$2,200,000, the estimated dollar rate of tax levy required to produce such an amount being $0.31
per $1,000 of assessed value, in 2019 for collection in 2020 of $2,200,000, the estimated dollar
rate of tax levy required to produce such an amount being $0.31 per $1,000 of assessed value,
and in 2020 for collection in 2021 of $2,200,000, the estimated dollar rate of tax levy required to
produce such an amount being $0.31 per $1,000 of assessed value, all in excess of the maximum
levy provided by law for school districts without voter approval. The exact tax levy rate may be
adjusted based upon the actual assessed value of the taxable property within the District at the
time of the levy.

If such proposition is approved by the requisite number of voters, the District will be
authorized to levy excess property taxes and use the proceeds of such levies to pay the expenses
of the Projects thereof, during the school years 2017-2018, 2018-2019, 2019-2020, 2020-2021,
and 2021-2022, all as may be authorized by law and deemed necessary and advisable by the
Board.

Section 4. If available proceeds from the excess property tax levies authorized herein
are more than sufficient to carry out the Projects, or should state or local circumstances require
any alteration in the Projects, the District may apply such proceeds to the implementation of the
District’s technology and learning plans, other capital purposes, or the reduction or elimination
of the excess property tax levies authorized herein, all as the Board may determine by resolution
and as permitted by law.

If the Board shall determine that it has become impractical to accomplish the Projects or
any portion thereof by reason of state or local circumstances, including changed conditions or
needs, regulatory considerations, incompatible development or costs substantially in excess of
those estimated, the District shall not be required to accomplish such Projects and may apply the
proceeds from the excess property tax levies or any portion thereof to other capital purposes of
the District, or reduce or eliminate the excess property tax levies authorized herein, all as the
Board may determine by resolution and as permitted by law. In the event that the proceeds from
the excess property tax levies authorized herein, plus any other money of the District legally
available therefor, are insufficient to accomplish all of the Projects, the District shall use the
available money for paying the cost of that portion of the Projects that is deemed by the Board
most necessary and in the best interest of the District.

Section 5. It is hereby found and declared that the best interests of the District require
the submission to the qualified electors of the District of the proposition of whether or not the
District shall levy such excess property taxes for their ratification or rejection at a special
election to be held therein on February 14, 2017.

The Secretary of the Board of Directors is hereby authorized and directed to certify said
proposition substantially in the following form:
