Preliminary Bond Planning

District seeks community’s priorities for facilities improvements

Download printable fact sheet PDF >> English | Spanish

Walla Walla Public Schools is seeking input on facilities improvement package options developed by the Community Facilities Task Force as it targets November 2018 for a bond election. Renovations of Walla Walla High School, Pioneer Middle School and Lincoln High School are at the top of the needs list developed by the Task Force. Other needs across the district such as roofing, HVAC and school safety have also been identified as priorities. The Community Facilities Task Force, chaired by local businessman Paul Schneidmiller, has been meeting since the fall of 2016 and is looking at low-cost options to renovate existing schools rather than build new. This renovation-based approach aims to preserve the district’s existing buildings and infrastructure while renovating them to meet today’s educational needs.

Walla Walla High School students and staff dedicate the new
flagpole as the school opens during the 1963-64 school year.

Facilities Improvement Package Options:

(Both packages are eligible for $52.6 million in State Match funds. All State Match funds will be applied to these projects.)
