The renewal levy ensures the Beaverton School District can maintain more than 280 teaching positions without raising the tax rate. Levy-funded teaching positions are allocated to every school in the district. Currently, 150 positions are allocated to Beaverton's elementary schools, 48 to middle schools, 68 to high schools and 20 to options schools. Renewing the local levy would keep the tax rate first approved by voters in 2013—$1.25 per $1,000 assessed value.
