Capital Levy, Building Foundations for Our Future

Restore, Improve, Replace

Thank You, PSD Voters! The 2024 Capital Levy is passing with a 51.29% approval rating, and we want to express our heartfelt gratitude.  

Your support enables us to address 906 critical projects districtwide. These projects span building improvements, technology upgrades, safety and security enhancements, and improvements to outdoor programs. Each of these projects is crucial in meeting the evolving needs of our students and staff. 

Your commitment to our community will help us to replace, improve, and restore valuable public infrastructure, and we are excited about the positive impact these improvements will have on the educational experience within our district. Thank you once again for your trust and support, and for investing in Puyallup Schools. 

Follow us here or on social media @FoundationsForOurFuture as we move from planning to construction.

*Much of the funding included in this capital levy is not just related to systems that need replacement due to their age but are also tied to becoming compliant with the Clean Buildings Act. We agree that the intent of this legislation is good for improving our impact on the environment, conserving energy, and lowering our operations costs, however it will take a significant investment. Without funding, it will be impossible to reach the benchmarks required to avoid the fines that will be levied by the state. Those fines would be paid from the general fund and could be thousands of dollars, again, impacting the resources available for teaching and learning. Learn more about our CBA requirements.
