Selah Superintendent Counting on Voters to Pass Bond

Posted: Updated:

SELAH, Wash. - The Selah School District is trying again, asking voters to approve a nearly $20 million bond.  The construction bond would pay for the replacement of Selah Junior High School.

Selah Superintendent Dr. Larry Parsons says they surveyed residents, and found that bond proposals should focus on three things: student safety, improving poor infrastructure systems, and updating outdated classrooms.

Parsons is staying positive this time around.  He says, "I feel wonderful about it, because I think after people really look at the school, they'll see the need.  This is a building that's been well-maintained, but it was built on the cheap in the 1950's."

The bond proposal is set to go before voters for the May 15th election.
