Lake Washington School District is growing. The district has grown by over 3200 students in the last five years. It has grown from the sixth largest district to the fourth largest district in the state in one year. To meet these growing needs for classroom space, the district’s board of directors voted to place a bond measure on the April 26 ballot. This measure, for $398 million in 20-year bonds, would fund the most immediate, high priority needs. The total tax rate will be maintained at the 2015 rate.
Four upcoming community meetings are a chance to learn more about the bond measure and the projects it would fund. The four meetings will take place:
· March 15, Redmond High School cafeteria, 6:30-8:00 pm
· March 22, Juanita High School cafeteria, 6:30-8:00 pm
· March 29, Lake Washington High School commons, 6:30-8:00 pm
· April 13, Eastlake High School commons, 6:30-8:00 pm
