News Release
Evergreen Public Schools to host open houses on proposed bond measure - 01/09/18

Evergreen Public Schools will host two open house events on Thursday, January 25, to present information and answer questions about its proposed capital facilities bond measure. Both sessions, one from 2:00-3:00 p.m. and the other from 5:30-6:30 p.m., will be held at the district's Administrative Service Center (13501 NE 28th Street) in the Evergreen Room.

Both sessions will begin with an overview of the bond measure, including which schools will be added, replaced and upgraded, as well as financial and tax rate information. District staff will be available to answer questions and provide more specific information about the scope of the projects.

In November 2017, the Evergreen School Board passed a resolution to place a $695 million bond measure on the February 13, 2018 ballot. The total package, which is expected to include an additional $95 million in state matching funds and $12 million in local impact fees, will replace five elementary schools, one middle school and two high schools, plus provide safety, security, and infrastructure upgrades at nearly every other district facility.

The district last passed a capital facilities bond in 2002, and those bonds are nearly paid off. So taxpayers, beginning in 2019, will actually see a total local school property tax decrease, even if the new bond measure is passed.

More information about the bond proposal is available at www.evergreenps.org/envision.
