Our enrollment is growing, and our elementary schools are crowded. We need more classrooms to give our students the best opportunities to learn and make room for lower class sizes.
The $299 million school construction bond is part of a long-term facilities plan developed by a community-led committee of citizens
from across the district. It is a fiscally responsible approach, prioritizing the most urgent needs first and capitalizing on state matching funds.
The school construction bond will go before voters on November 8. The plan is called Proposition 1.
This bond will make students safer across the district. Our oldest schools do not meet modern fire and earthquake codes. This bond will fix that and improve security at every school in the district. All students will benefit from safety and security improvements included in this bond.
Proposition 1 includes design for the next aging schools on the priority list for replacement: Evergreen, Tyee, and Pacific. Passing this bond gets us one step closer to replacing those schools.
