Bainbridge school levy passes with ease

The school operations levy was passing with an overwhelming 72.88 percent on Tuesday night.

“We are thrilled,” Superintendent Faith Chapel said. “We have had a number of levy measures in the past that have been approved at similar levels, but we weren’t sure what to expect following on the heels of a bond measure in November. We are deeply, deeply appreciative of the support we have from our community.”

Chapel said she was “grateful and absolutely thrilled at the results” throughout the county.

Similar levies were passing in Bremerton (63 percent), Central Kitsap (62 percent) and North Kitsap (72 percent).
