Proposition 2: Technology Levy

The technology Levy is our primary source for providing the technological resources that directly contribute to the success of students and instructional programs in the district. Like other WA State school districts, BISD receives no dedicated state funding for technology hardware, software, or services/support. Like electricity and water, Internet access to online educational services is a critical resource for daily education and operational functions.

The current Technology Levy provides $2.5 million of annual funding to support the following items:

  • All student (1:1 ratio in grades 3-12) computer devices, including centralized device security and management software
  • Classroom technologies like teachers’ laptops. interactive flat panel displays, voice amplification, etc.
  • Data Services for Students (ex: Skyward/Family Access, and Assessments)
  • Library technologies (check-in/check-out software and kiosks, e-books)
  • Education Technology (video capturing/editing, audio commentary)
  • Technology Professional Development Day
  • One Instructional Technology & Assessment position
  • Operational technology (VOIP phone systems, networking, printers, data backup, etc.)
  • Cyber-security and cyber-safety services
  • Software and online Services for productivity & communication (ex. Microsoft, Google, ParentSquare, bus route transportation services, etc.
