Facilities committee recommends bond election in Wenatchee (Wash.) district

July 1, 2010
$72 million referendum would help repair aging campuses

From The Wenatchee World: The Wenatchee (Wash.) school district’s facilities committee has recommended that the school board consider a $72 million bond measure. School board members seemed uneasy about the community’s receptiveness to the idea, and plan to gather public opinion before committing to an election. Among the facility deficiencies that need to be addressed: the continued use of 12 portable classrooms at Lincoln Elementary; daily parking jams before and after school at Washington Elementary, the district’s oldest school; and a shortage of space at the mostly windowless Wenatchee High School.
