Ridgefield schools to host public meeting on levy

By , Columbian staff writer

RIDGEFIELD — The Ridgefield School District will host an informational meeting on Proposition 9, the district’s Replacement Educational Programs and Operations Levy on the Aug. 2 primary election ballot.

The public event will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Commons at the Ridgefield Administrative and Civic Center, 510 Pioneer St. in Ridgefield.

District administrators will present information and answer questions about the replacement levy. More information can be found at

The school board unanimously approved putting the levy on the Aug. 2 ballot. The levy is not a new tax; if approved, it will replace the levy that expires at the end of 2022 and allow the district to maintain educational programs and day-to-day school operations, such as school staff not fully funded by the state, building maintenance, extracurricular activities and more.

The replacement levy would maintain the current school tax rate of $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed value. If passed, the levy will be collected for three years starting in 2023.
