Thank You for Saying YES for Our Schools!

posted Jun 5, 2018, 9:01 AM by Salem Keizer

As we head into summer break, we want to say “Thank you” to our community for approving the 2018 bond! Because of our community’s support, Salem-Keizer Public Schools will be able to make improvements, expansions and/or renovations all across the district. Improvements planned include additional space to serve our community’s growing enrollment as well as expanded career-technical (vocational) spaces, more space for science education, safety and security improvements and seismic safety upgrades.

Five schools are scheduled to begin construction in 2019 – Gubser Elementary School, Judson Middle School, Waldo Middle School, McNary High School and North Salem High School. All work approved under the bond is planned to be finished in about five years. For more information about projects funded by the 2018 bond, please visit https://bondinfo.salkeiz.k12.or.us/bonddocuments/.

At many schools, construction is likely to take place during the school year. Schools, architects and the district’s bond program management team will work together to minimize disruption of the educational environment caused by construction. However, it’s important for parents, students and staff to be aware that school operations will be different during construction. Our commitment to student safety and success will be unchanged during construction.

We would once again like to extend our appreciation to the Salem-Keizer community for supporting students and schools by approving the 2018 bond!

2018 PROPOSED BOND ON MAY 15 BALLOT

posted Apr 16, 2018, 2:29 PM by wright elementary

The School Board has finished its work on a bond package and has referred it to the May 15 ballot for the community to consider. 

Before finalizing the bond, the Board heard feedback through a community survey, through the Community Facilities Task Force and through listening sessions with staff and community members held in every high school neighborhood. The Board twice asked staff to revise the bond package to make sure it aligned with the feedback they received and still addressed the needs of facilities. 

Highlights of the proposed bond include: 

· Increasing safety and security, including seismic safety of schools 

· Adding/expanding space to relieve crowding and prepare for future enrollment, including general education classrooms and space for music programs 

· Adding/expanding space for career-technical (vocational) education at all six traditional high schools as well as Roberts High School 

· Adding/renovating science labs at middle and high schools 

The proposed bond package totals $619.7 million and if passed by voters in May, is estimated to increase the current property tax levy rate by $1.24 per $1,000 of assessed value. If the bond does not pass, the additional tax would not be levied and the listed projects would not be completed. The Community Facilities Task Force reviewed all funding methods available to the district and recommended the School Board place a general obligation bond on the ballot for voters to consider. The district would receive an $8 million grant from the state if the bond passes. 

To be eligible to vote in the May election, you must be a registered voter and reside in the district. To register or to update your voter registration, please visit the Oregon Secretary of State’s website: https://goo.gl/tt1zVx 

You must be registered by April 24. Ballots will be mailed to voters on April 25. For more information about the proposed bond measure, please visit www.bondinfo.salemkeizer.org.
