Parkrose voters appear to reject school levy for teachers

Parkrose voters appear to be their way to rejecting a school levy to keep 22 teaching positions.

The five-year levy, beginning in 2023, would tax property owners $1 per $1,000 of assessed value. The school district projects that the levy would bring in more than $2 million per year, or approximately $13 million over five years.

In partial returns tallied as of 8:16 p.m. Tuesday, voters appeared to have rejected the measure 54.92% to 45.08%.

There was no organized opposition to the measure.
