High School Students Canvass Neighborhoods for Kennewick School Bond
KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Kamiakin High School students were going door to door Wednesday, canvassing neighborhoods to tell people more about the upcoming Kennewick school bond.
They were knocking on doors, talking to neighbors, and handing out door tags with information. About 30 students decided to get involved this time because they thought it would be more personal for voters to hear it from them.
One Kamiakin senior tells us about her experience with Kennewick schools. Polly Wiltz says, "The school that I was supposed to be going to was so over-crowded that I had to go to a different school. So, I know how bad the over-crowding is. It's been bad since I was in 5th grade."
This is the second time the $68-million bond will be on the ballot. If passed, it would pay for a new elementary school and to remodel others. To pass, 60-percent of the votes must be yes votes. The same measure fell short in March by less than one percent. Ballots are due next Tuesday, May 19th.
