With a unanimous vote - the Bend La Pine Schools Board approved placing a $96-million maintenance and construction bond on the May ballot.

 

Bond Committee Co-Chair Andy High says they worked very hard to make this bond attractive to voters. "The great thing about this bond is that we have been able to work all the number and fit it within the current tax rate that's being assessed. So if the voters approve this, they won't see any tax increase because of this bond."

 

High says the school district sorely needs two new schools and upgrades to many classrooms.

 

11 of the district's 17 elementary schools are near, at, or over capacity and three of the four middle schools are getting close.

 

He says the highest concentration and projected growth looks to be in the southwest, east and southeast areas.

 

High says now the hard part begins: educating the voting public about the need to continue funding our schools.
