 The Olympia City Council is considering a resolution to support the Olympia School District’s Technology and Capital Projects Levy. The levy will go before voters Feb. 11 in a special election. If approved, it will replace the district’s current tech levy, which expires this year.

The new levy is expected to generate about $13.2 million total from 2015-2018 and cost homeowners an average of about $9 a month, according to the district. The money will fund safety projects and technology enhancements districtwide, including new computers, cameras on buses and devices to assist special education students.
