Capital Levy February 12, 2019
You're Invited: Tour the 100 Building
Bainbridge Island School District is placing a $15 million capital levy on the February 12, 2019 ballot.
- Completion of construction project at Bainbridge High School which consists of replacing the 100 Building and transforming the current commons into an auditorium. (This project is mostly funded from the 2016 Bond.)
- Maintenance and repairs for six years
- Renovations such as school security upgrades
Since the time of the 2016 bond’s approval, the greater Seattle region has experienced a construction boom which has resulted in increased prices for labor and materials. This escalation, coupled with state funding that didn’t fully materialize and new building codes, have resulted in a funding shortfall for BISD projects identified in the 2016 Bond.
“Our public schools are the heart of our community,” said Superintendent Peter Bang-Knudsen. “By investing in our school infrastructure, we will continue to provide an optimal education for students now and in the future.”
