Long-Range Facilities Master Plan

Planning for the Future

Long-Range Facilities Master Plan maintains one of the region’s lowest school bond rates


Although bond rates have been as high as $1.80 in the mid 2000’s, the rate has dropped to approximately $1.23/$1,000, one of the lowest school bond rates in the valley (approximately $2.79 in Touchet, $2.60 in College Place & $1.34 in Waitsburg). The district’s approach with its Long-Range Facilities Master Plan is to maintain a consistent rate for taxpayers with replacement bonds approximately every 15 years.
