Potential bond measure could go before voters on Feb. 14, 2017
If the school board approves, voters will be asked to approve a property tax measure that could provide funding to rebuild or upgrade every school in Vancouver Public Schools. It has been nearly 16 years since the last bond measure was approved. Let's keep up the good work. All of our students deserve 21st century schools.
The bond could complete the following projects:
Replace: King, Marshall, Ogden, Truman and Walnut Grove elementary schools; McLoughlin Middle School; Lieser Campus and Fir Grove/Vista.
Expand and update: Franklin and Sacajawea elementary schools; Columbia River High School; Vancouver School of Arts and Academics and Kiggins Bowl Stadium.
Build new: Vancouver iTech Preparatory; two elementary schools.
Improvements and updates: Anderson, Chinook, Eisenhower, Felida, Fruit Valley, Harney, Hazel Dell, Hough, Lake Shore, Lincoln, Minnehaha, Roosevelt, Salmon Creek and Washington elementary schools; Alki, Discovery, Gaiser, Jason Lee and Jefferson middle schools; Fort Vancouver, Hudson's Bay and Skyview high schools; and Vancouver Flex Academy.
