Islanders who want to learn how the Legislature’s adoption last year of House Bill 2242, which changed how property taxes are collected to fund basic education in the state, can attend an upcoming school board meeting to find out how the new law will affect the budget for the Bainbridge Island School District.

Assistant Superintendent Erin Murphy and Peggy Paige, the district’s director of finance, will give a budget presentation at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27 in the district’s board room (9530 High School Road).

Murphy and Paige will talk about how the state law will impact the school district’s budget.

After the presentation, people can take a survey to share their ideas and suggestions for use in the development of the school district’s 2018-19 budget and staffing plan.
