$23.9 million proposed for local schools in Inslee plan

unveiled his proposal to fully fund basic education.

In a release from Inslee’s office, it says his plan is one that is “against incrementalism” and will “boost efforts to recruit great teachers and fund proven strategies for helping more students succeed” by doing it all at once instead of piece by piece over years.

“We face an opportunity — and an obligation — in this upcoming session to not just put more money into the system we already have, but to invest in the kind of education system all our children deserve,” Inslee said.

The governor is proposing $3.9 billion in new funding for K-12 schools across the state. His proposal would boost the overall K-12 spending to 50 percent of the state budget.

Locally, this would mean a total of $23.9 million in additional funds for schools throughout Grays Harbor, from $7 million for Aberdeen down to $200,000 for Satsop.

Inslee’s budget would meet the current order to fully fund basic education in Washington.

Inslee says that his plan funds schools without increasing property taxes, and provide every district with more money from the state, and local property taxes would be reduced for more than three-fourths of households and businesses statewide.
