In 2016, voters approved an $81.2 million bond measure that included $39 million towards replacing Blakely Elementary, $30 million towards replacing the Bainbridge High School 100 Building and $12.2 million towards district-wide repairs and essential renovations. At the time of the 2016 election, the district knew the construction projects were estimated to cost more than the amount that voters approved, but in order to keep the tax rate stable, the district identified $10.5 million in anticipated funds that would go towards the bond projects.
