November 4, 2020 - THANK YOU VOTERS!

Preliminary results released Nov. 3 at 8:15 p.m. showed that 58.36 percent of votes were cast in support of the District’s two-year supplemental levy, which is more than the required minimum of 50% +1 of all votes submitted.

The Pierce County Auditor’s Office will certify November’s general election results on Nov. 24.

Superintendent Message:

We are so thankful that our local community is committed to sustaining educational programs and meeting student needs beyond what the State funds.  We are incredibly grateful that our community has come together to invest in Puyallup Schools.  Although this supplemental levy will not eliminate our budget deficit, it will certainly lessen the impact to the classroom. 

This election was unprecedented, for many reasons.  Nationally, it has caused us to pause and reflect on who we are and what we believe in.  For Puyallup School District, we believe the greatest return on your support is education for all our students.   We also believe that our community support reaffirms hope, trust, and appreciation.  We are grateful for your support.

Even though we may not be able to control what’s going on around us, we can define our schools and inspire our community.  Thank you for your vote of confidence in our students and staff.  Your vote of support ensures that our tradition of excellence will continue to extend well beyond our classrooms. 

Dr. John A. Polm
Superintendent
