Voters passing $695 million Evergreen Public Schools bond measure - 02/14/18

Updated election results are in for the $695 million Evergreen Public Schools bond measure. As of 3:30 p.m., Wednesday February 14, 61 percent of voters are approving the measure that will replace five elementary schools, build a new elementary school, replace Wy'East Middle School, Legacy and Mountain View High Schools, and provide substantial updates at many other district schools.

"The voters have placed great confidence in the district by approving the largest bond in the community's history. When combined with anticipated state matching funds and locally collected impact fees, more than $800 million in school projects will be completed over the next six years. Thank you to the community for your incredible support," stated School Board President Todd Yuzuriha.

The first step begins immediately with the start of financial and project management components that will allow capital improvements, design and construction to begin as early as this spring. Projects included in the bond are all slated for completion by 2024.

The elections results are considered preliminary since ballots, postmarked on February 13, could still be received by Clark County Elections over the next several days. The first election night tally of 20,473 ballots had the Bond passing at 60.12 percent, but with today's update of another 2,173 ballots counted, the Yes votes rose one percent. In Washington state, school bonds need a super majority of 60 percent to pass. Final election results will be certified on Friday, February 23, 2018.

The following Evergreen teachers obtained their National Board Certification this year: Robert Berrigan (Heritage High School), Rebecca Brown (Covington Middle School), Jalah Bryant (Covington Middle School), Anna Capacci (Evergreen High School), Marissa Davis (Wy'east Middle School), Ada Dellay (Cascade Middle School), Brooke Eckleberry (Evergreen and Henrietta Lacks High Schools), Lisa Beth Elliott (Orchards Elementary), Lynelle Gamage (Crestline Elementary), Amanda Godsil (Frontier Middle School), Jeff Goudy (Shahala Middle School), Stephanie Holtman (Orchards Elementary), Mary Krzysiak (Crestline Elementary), Amberlynn Lane (Silver Star Elementary), Kari Liebert (Fisher's Landing Elementary), Miranda Massart (Heritage High School), Steven Massart (Heritage High School), Andrea Mortensen (Frontier Middle School), Susan Payton (Burnt Bridge Creek Elementary), Erin Pinning (Education Technology), Heather Sochacki (Wy'east Middle School), DeAnn VanNess (Columbia Valley Elementary), Laurie Williams (Covington Middle School) and Judith Wittenberg (Mountain View High School).

The following National Board Certified teachers completed the Profile of Professional Growth, and received their Renewal Certifications: Angela Adkisson (Orchards Elementary), Chrystaline Barnum (York Elementary), Beth Boldra (York Elementary), Kelly Bristol (Pacific Middle School), Stephen Doyle (Legacy High School), Bruce Dunn (Covington Middle School/Silver Star and Sunset Elementary Schools), Marilyn Eterno (York Elementary), Julie Hannan (Covington MiddleSchool), Brad Holten (Covington Middle School), Jessica Iverson (Fisher's Landing Elementary), Joel Karn (Heritage High School), Terrence lamp (Harmony Elementary), Peggy McNabb (Evergreen High School), Patricia Moore (York Elementary), Kellie Morgan (Crestline), Karin Olson-Roundy (Pacific Middle School), Kris Rold (York Elementary), Shannon Shambaugh (Riverview Elementary), Mary Thompson (Heritage High School) and Scott Winks (Shahala Middle School/Columbia Valley and Fisher's Landing Elementary Schools).

"We are proud of our expanding number of National Board Certified teachers. They demonstrate a commitment to excellence- to their students and their vocation-and we know that translates daily to a positive impact in classrooms," said Evergreen Superintendent John Steach.
