Nooksack Valley School Board Approves Bond Resolution for February 2015 Ballot The Nooksack Valley School District Board of Directors approved a plan to put a $27.9 million bond proposal before district voters in February to address the district’s most critical facility’s needs. This recommendation was made by the 18 member Facilities Advisory Committee after months of planning, discussion and study to determine how best to address district building needs. After looking at several options representing a range of costs, it was determined that this current plan allowed the district to address deficiencies with the least impact to taxpayers. In addition to the $27.9 million bond amount, the District would also be eligible for $7.4 million in state funding assistance when the bond is approved by local voters. This 18 member committee is comprised of various stakeholders from throughout our communities, including parents, teachers, community members (including retirees), school board members and administrators. “I want to thank this dedicated group of individuals for volunteering their time and expertise to help us put together a bond package that will serve our students and community for years to come,” said Superintendent Mark Johnson. The recommended bond proposal includes the following: · Replace Nooksack Valley Middle School, originally constructed in 1947 · Add four classrooms, and enclose/expand the existing play shed at an overcrowded Nooksack Valley Elementary School · Replace the 1954 portion of Nooksack Valley High School, including a new STEM lab and counseling center · Construct and equip a new fitness center at the high school · Renovate and remodel agricultural sciences, woodshop and art classrooms at the high school · Enhance safety and security The District will be sending out additional information on the bond in the coming months.
