* Funding for education in the state of Washington is complicated and can lead to questions about how schools receive the money needed to operate. The state of Washington is required to supply school districts with state funding for "basic educatin" which is based on what is referred to as a "prototypical model" representing the Legislature's assumptions of what resources are required to provide the program of basic edcuation.
Unfortunantly, when the funding provided by the state does not cover the actual costs to operate, construct, and maintain a schol district, districts often utilize bonds and levies to bridge the gap. This local funding allows school districts to provide the structures and services communities rely on, which allows students to grow and thrive.
