New School Bond Goes to Voters in March

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wa -    The Yakima School District is asking voters to consider a new $65.7 million school bond in March. 

This one will focus on replacing the four elementary schools.  They have cut their price down about $54 million dollars from the last bond which failed in May, but it will not include new high schools for Davis and Eisenhower. 

The four elementary schools in this bond are Garfield, Hoover, Mckinley and Nob Hill.  There will also be land acquisitions for Garfield and Mckinley. Stanton Academy and Discovery Lab will also be replaced, and the Science Center will be relocated. 

Some money from the bond will be used to develop plans for upgrades or replacing Davis and Eisenhower high schools, as well as a land acquisition for Davis.
