WSD Bond Update - December 19, 2017

In May 2015, the Woodburn community approved a $65 million bond. We continue to make progress on bond-funded projects to add space for students, make major repairs to maintain our schools, and improve security/technology systems. These proposed projects are scheduled along a 5­-year timeline (2015-2019) for completion.

Washington Elementary 

Construction of a 2-story addition is underway on the Washington Elementary site, which includes underground water lines for fire suppression system; Fire Department access roads; storm water management system; new covered play area; bus turn-around and staff parking; and a new gymnasium building foundation system. Recent progress on the site:
• Exterior Windows have been installed
• Roofing System is close to completion
• Temporary heat being used to assist with drying out the classroom structure
• Exterior walls and roof structure has been erected for book room
• Storm water management system completed
• Installed roofing on play structure
