Abstract : House Bill 611, passed by the 1987 legislature, appropriated approximately $8 million to mitigate the impacts on local school districts in Snohomish County from the Everett Navy Homeport. The only funding allocations made to date under House Bill 611 has been approximately $1.3 million distributed to Kitsap County school districts for impacts associated with the Nimitz arrival in Bremerton. The purpose of this analysis is to: (1) Provide an overview of the chronology and intent of state funding for mitigating the education-related impacts associated with the Everett Homeport Project. (2) Provide a detailed description of the successful efforts of the Kitsap school districts in obtaining state funding for the Nimitz impacts. (3) Project operations and maintenance cost impacts on Snohomish County school districts from the Everett Navy Homeport Project, using the methodology employed in the Kitsap funding case. A computer model has been developed for the purpose of projecting operating and maintenance costs. The model takes projections of Homeport project-related immigrant school children and applies various input factors to project cost impacts in four categories of expenditures: Instructional Space (portables); Instructional Materials (textbooks); Furniture and Equipment; and Pupil Transportation Costs (buses). (4) Identify potential strategies for Snohomish County school districts for pursuing future state funding from Homeport project-related impacts.
