Community invited to hear Evergreen Public Schools bond construction update - 10/10/19

Currently, three new elementary schools (Sifton, Image and Elementary #22) are under construction, and others (Mountain View and Legacy High Schools, Wy’east Middle School, 49th Street Academy and Transitions) are in the design phase. Over the summer, significant upgrades happened throughout the district.

Evergreen Public Schools Sells Second Round of Bonds - 09/26/19

Evergreen Public Schools recently sold the second set of bonds from the $695 million February 2018 voter-approved measure.   The bonds will provide $200 million in project funding, were sold via a competitive bidding process conducted by the District’s finance team and approved by Superintendent Mike Merlino on Tuesday, September 24.

Bids were received from seven national underwriting syndicates, with the winning bid from a group led by Bank of America Securities, Inc.  The overall cost of borrowing for this 19-year financing is a low 2.41%.

Rates on these types of financings remain near historic lows.  “This is a great time to be financing the projects approved by voters.  Rates are historically low, and today’s sale was a big success for taxpayers and Evergreen.” Merlino said.

The funds from this second bond sale will go toward a wide variety of projects that will include the new Mt. View and Legacy High Schools, Marrion and Ellsworth Elementary Schools and other capital renewal projects.  The first sale of $125 million in June 2018 is being used to fund the replacement of Sifton and Image Elementary Schools, construct the district’s 22nd elementary school, and covered a number of capital renewal projects undertaken during the last year.
