Description of the Bond Proposal for the Yakima School District
Yakima, WA - Yakima, WA - The bond proposal for the Yakima School District calls for voters to approve school bonds to approve school bonds totaling almost $120 million. That certainly is a hefty sum, but the school district has some big plans.
They want to use the money to replace and expand AC Davis and Eisenhower high schools, and Stanton Academy. The same goes for Garfield, Hoover and McKinley elementary schools and the Discovery Lab School.
They will also use the money to renovate Nob Hill Elementary School, move the Science Center, make other improvements in the school district and pay down some debt. School bonds are paid for through property taxes.
This bond issue is expected to raise Yakima's local taxes to 84 cents per $1,000 of assessed value of your property… or, about $170 per year for a $200,000 home through the life of the bonds (15 years).
