A two-year $40 million levy before voters Tuesday for the Central Kitsap School District’s education and school operations was failing, coming up short in election returns.

The levy received just 47.69% of the vote in favor, with 52.31% of voters casting ballots against the measure. It would have collected a levy rate of $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed property valuation in 2023 and 2024.

Meanwhile, in the Bremerton School District, voters in that district supported the two-year capital levy by a 54.4% margin. The levy was passing by a 54.36%-45.64% margin. It is a two-year, $17 million measure to maintain and modernize school facilities, including an outdoor multi-fitness complex at Mountain View Middle School in Bremerton.

The project will cost property owners within Bremerton School District $1.32 per $1,000 of assessed property value for 2023. The tax rate is to be lowered to $1.26 per $1,000 for 2024.

The levy is to replace the existing capital projects levy expiring at the end of 2022.
