D21 Board Puts Bond Plan On The Ballot

The North Wasco County School District 21 Board has approved placing a measure on the November ballot authorizing the district to issue 235 million dollars in bonds over the next 20 years to replace most of the district’s buildings.  D-21 Chief Financial Officer Randy Anderson says the bonds would be sold every five years.  The first project would be to construct a new high school at the Wahtonka campus, and future projects would include replacement of the district’s three elementary schools.  The district also wants to modernize classrooms and improve safety and security in the schools.
