A017 - Local Effort Assistance

Statewide, most school districts receive a significant percent of their revenue from local voter-approved property tax levies. Since some school districts have lower property values than others, local school district levy rates vary. The lower the property values, the higher the levy rates tend to be. The state "equalizes" local funds by providing state funds in lieu of property tax collection for school districts with higher than average levy rates. School districts must pass a local maintenance and operations levy to be eligible for local effort assistance funds.

Each school district electing to provide student transportation to and from school is entitled to state pupil transportation funding. The formula uses basic and special student loads, school district land area, average distance to school, roadway miles, and the number of locations served to allocate funding to districts. The state also pays for the replacement of district school buses through a depreciation system. Schools transport over 480,000 students 90 million miles annually.

A038 - Basic Education

The Washington State Constitution requires the state to define and fully fund basic public education for all school-aged children.

The funds are allocated to, and spent by, the districts and their elected school boards.
