Prosser (Wash.) district fails to win bond election for new high school

April 29, 2011
Voters say no to $39 million bond request

From The Tacoma News-Tribune: On its third try, the Prosser (Wash.) School District couldn't persuade voters to pay to replace its high school, which officials say is too small and too old. A $39 million request was defeated. Prosser High School was built in 1936 for 500 students. A wing and portable classrooms have been added, but the high school now has 900 students in the aging facility. After voters rejected a bond proposal in February, the district slashed $2 million from the construction budget.

FEBRUARY 2011...from The Tri-City Herald: The Prosser (Wash.) School has failed to win approval of a $41.3 million bond issue that would have helped pay for a new high school. If the bond had passed, the school district would have received an additional $23.5 million in matching state money.
