About The Measure

The Nine Mile Falls School District is asking voters to approve a construction bond for the third time in two years. The $33 million bond would pay for a new high school building.

The previous request was for $29.4 million and wouldn’t have completely rebuilt the high school, only rebuilt or remodeled sections.

Lakeside High School was built 25 years ago. The new school would improve safety by allowing staff to better control who enters the school, officials say. It would have dedicated labs for science classes, a multipurpose space for performing arts and a larger, modernized gymnasium.

The bond would cost taxpayers $1.19 per $1,000 assessed property value. The 2015 proposal would have cost more at $1.35 per $1,000.
