Letter from the Superintendent
Within the Snohomish community, there is a sense of pride in our schools. Whether you are new to the district or generations of your family went through the school system, student success and the quality of education reflects our community. On February 11, the Snohomish School District is asking voters to consider a capital bond to continue building for our students’ future.
One of the most significant issues facing Snohomish schools is overcrowding and the dependence on portables. As our district grows, our aging schools need to keep up with enrollment and ensure our students have access to modern facilities.
If approved on February 11 by voters, the bond will fund the rebuilding of six of our oldest elementary schools, additional classrooms at Glacier Peak High School, and the creation of an early learning center. Central Primary Center and Emerson Elementary would be combined into one new K-6 facility on the Emerson site. By rebuilding six schools, our district will ensure that every student has the space they need to grow and access to a high-quality learning environment. Improvements to the Parkway Campus, home to our alternative learning programs, such as AIM High School and Parent Partnership Program, and improvements to the district’s maintenance and transportation facilities are also included. The bond also funds safety and security improvements throughout the district to ensure all our students and staff are safe. These improvements include exterior digital access control, internal access control, and new camera systems.
Please watch these videos to see why we need the bond for our students and how those tax dollars help Snohomish School District students succeed. For additional resources, please visit these links:
Thank you for your time,
Dr. Kent Kultgen, Superintendent
