District Headlines & Features
Hello FWPS Parents, Families and Community,
As you know, the passage of the Educational Programs & Operations (EP&O) replacement levy is one of our most pressing needs to continue essential funding beyond what the state provides for staffing, services and programs to adequately support our scholars across 38 school sites. This replaces the current EP&O levy that is set to expire in December 2018.
At this time, the EP&O replacement levy placed on the Feb. 13 ballot is showing promise and is anticipated to pass based on preliminary results posted by King County Elections.
The results as of 8:15 p.m. on Feb. 13 are trending positive with 56.53 percent YES votes (8,288) compared to 43.47 percent NO (6,373) for a total of 14,661 counted. A simple majority vote of 50 percent plus one approval of voter turnout is needed to pass. The King County Elections Office will continue to update the results daily until the election results are certified on February 23, 2018.
Thank you to our voters for their support, and continuing investment in high quality staff and programming that benefit all 23,000 scholars in Federal Way Public Schools (FWPS).
