About the Bond
It has been nearly 15 years since the passage of the last school bond measure in the Scappoose School District. In that time, the Scappoose community has grown; enrollment in Career & Technical Education has increased; safety and security concerns have changed; and basic systems like electrical, heating, and roofs are aging and do not function as designed. In addition, the 92-year-old Scappoose Middle School building has failing infrastructure; is seismically unsound; and lacks modern fire suppression systems. Additionally, the building does not adequately meet current educational standards with limited space for programs such as career and technical education, band, and choir.
The Scappoose School Bond, if passed, would make improvements to EVERY school in the district.
What would the Scappoose School Bond do specifically if passed?
The proposed Bond, if passed, would raise $110 million plus secure a $4 million matching grant (only if passed) to help fund the following projects in the Scappoose School District:
