Understanding the Impact of the Aug. 9 Bond Election

Last month, the school board approved the 10-year facility package to help address student growth where it is occurring. SoWashCo Schools will now ask voters to consider approval of a $462.6 million bond on Aug. 9, 2022. A bond is the only method to raise enough funds for construction, renovations and additions to meet the needs of our growing community. 

Over the next 10 years, more than 3,500 potential new K-12 students are expected to move into the district. If we do nothing, current projections show that 15 schools will be over capacity and we will have a deficit of nearly 2,500 K-12 seats for students by 2031.
