A $44.5 million bond proposal, with an estimated tax rate of 74¢ per $1,000 of assessed property value, failed to garner the required 60 percent approval.
The bond measure will provide funds for the construction of a new Evergreen Elementary School.
This followed the failure of a $79.5 million bond measure, with an estimated $1.49 per $1,000 of assessed property value, in February 2018. This proposal would have replaced Evergreen and also collected funds to repair significant issues at various school buildings districtwide.
Constructing a new Evergreen Elementary School was the number one priority of the Facilities Improvement Taskforce, which met twice a month from September 2016 through July of 2017.
The Sedro-Woolley School Board Directors will discuss next steps during a workshop on Dec. 10. The workshop will start at 5:30 p.m. and will be held at the Support Services Building, 317 Yellow Lane, Sedro-Woolley, WA.
