On November 6, 2018, Walla Walla Public Schools will ask voters to decide on a $65.6M replacement bond measure to renovate Walla Walla High School, Pioneer Middle School, and Lincoln High School and fund specific district-wide health, safety, educational and infrastructure improvements. The school renovation projects are eligible for an estimated $52.6M in State Match funds. All State Match funds will be applied only to the voter-approved projects. Any excess dollars remaining following the completion of these projects will be used to pay down debt to reduce the rate for taxpayers.
How were the projects identified?...
>> 18 member Community Facilities Task Force spent nearly two years prioritizing facility needs
>> Focus on classroom and learning needs
>> Renovation-based approach (not building new)
>> Bond proposal aligned with community feedback
