Pasco Schools posting videos of crowding

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.--  The Pasco School District has a new way to try and get people to vote for the school bond on special election ballots this month.

The district is putting videos of some of the schools on its website.  For example, one video shows a time lapsed lunch period at McLoughlin Middle School.  The building was designed for 1,000 students and now has 1,500.

Leslee Caul, Director of Public Affairs for PSD, says, pictures are worth a thousand words.  She explains, "The issue of crowding has been talked about in terms of numbers and statistics. And then you put a face to it and you actually see kids that are trying to hustle their way through the lunch line in a short amount of time." To see the videos, click here.

The $59-million bond would provide money to build two new schools, improve existing ones, and buy land for future buildings.  Ballots are due by April 26th.
