2018 Levy: “With the existing Educational Programs & Operations (EP&O) levy set to expire in 2018, the Federal Way Public Schools Board unanimously approved a resolution on November 28, 2017 to continue to fund essential staff and educational programs beyond what state funding offers under basic education. This replacement levy is not a new tax and the community has continuously supported Federal Way Public Schools’ (FWPS) EP&O levy since 1980. The FWPS superintendent and board of directors are committed to reducing the tax burden and as a result, local property owners will see a 37 percent decrease with the proposed EP&O levy.” https://www.fwps.org/domain/1755
