The school district is asking for 96 million to build two new schools and renovate some existing schools.

 

Neil Bryant is part of the politcal action committee trying to get the bond measure passed.

 

"We are being proactive about growth.  We need a new middle school and elementary school.  11 of our 17 elementary schools are at capacity. It takes three years to get a school open -- there's the bond measure, then theelection and if it passes, the constrution.  So it's two and a half to three years to have a school open.  What will our population be then?"

 

The bond would cost the homeowner of a  a 200-thousand dollar  home about 70 dollars a year.  It will repalce another school bond that is expried.

 

It's been proejcted that the Bend LaPine shcool district will grow by three thousand students in the next ten years.
