2006 Technology Levy


    Thank you!

    In 2006, the Bainbridge Island community passed a 4-year, $6.1 million technology levy for modernizing school district technology and telecommunication technologies. With these proceeds, the Bainbridge Island School District has completed  the following projects:
    • created a district-wide 4:1 computer to student ratio,
    • provided science classrooms in grades 6-12 with a 2:1 computer to student ratio,
    •  supported grades 6-12 science curriculum with subject-specific software and hardware such as probeware and robotics applications,
    • installed classroom presentation stations that included a laptop computer, LCD projector, and a document camera in all classrooms,
    • established at least one computer lab in each school,
    • matched assistive technologies to meet the special needs of students,
    • provided subscription-based online databases and learning resources for access at school and at home,
    • installed a district-wide library system for management of resources and staff and student accounts,
    • upgraded district-wide Internet connectivity at all buildings, and
    • established wireless connectivity in all schools.
