To the editor:
I am writing to urge readers to vote for the Bainbridge Island Schools’ levies on Feb. 9. These two levies – for enrichment/operations and technology – are vital to maintain present funding levels for public schools.
As a parent of BISD students, I see the benefits of the levies every day. When COVID forced us into a remote learning model, the levies helped BISD maintain enrichment programs like art, music and science while the tech levy provides laptops, classroom technology and infrastructure to enhance online learning.
Bainbridge Island takes pride that we prioritize public education. Vote for the levies to ensure that our students and teachers maintain our extraordinary record of success.
