This measure sought to increase the current property tax rate by $.31 per $1,000 of assessed property value in order to help with over crowding of district schools.[2] Specifically it will go towards building permanent facilities for high school and elementary school students. The money will also go towards building a new secondary school in the district to house more students. The Seattle King County REALTORS® have come out endorsing this measure noting that good schools are important to potential home buyers and are important for the community overall.[3]
