WSD Bond Update - March 1, 2018

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.  Inside the new two-story addition we are seeing classrooms and hallways start to take shape as interiors are being completed and flooring is installed. 

The school district has a web camera on the site so you can follow along with the day-to-day progress! To see what’s going on in real-time, please visit

Success High School 

A new high school building for the Success Alternative program. A community meeting space will be included in construction. On the campus, a solar array is being installed to provide green energy, as well as educational opportunities. The Groundbreaking ceremony was held on November 8, 2017. Completion is expected by September 2018 in time for the next school year. Recently, the final foundation phase was completed and walls are beginning to sprout up!

The School District and the City of Woodburn recently signed an inter-governmental agreement to issue permits up to occupancy for the Success project. The School District is appreciative of the partnership with the City and their willingness to work through some complex issues. 

Reminder! If you'd like to follow along and watch from the ground up at the new Success High School site, you can view it online. Just visit the BOND UPDATES page on the website (* and check out what’s going on!
