BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) -- A school levy proposed to add teachers and reduce class sizes in Beaverton was approved by voters.
With all the votes tallied, the measure passed 54-46.
Voters were faced with whether to prevent cuts to teacher staff by increasing the taxes. The levy adds $1.25 per $1,000 of assessed property value and is projected to provide the district with about $15 million per year.
Additionally, 100% of the local option funds will remain in the Beaverton school district to fund teaching positions.
