    2020 Capital Bond

    The Snohomish School District’s Board of Directors on Wednesday (September 25, 2019) approved placing a $470 million capital bond on the February 11, 2020 ballot to rebuild aging elementary schools, enhance safety and security in all schools and reduce use of portable classrooms. The district plans to provide more details this fall, and in the meantime, more details are available at www.sno.wednet.edu/2020bond. 


    Capital Projects are those new construction and major renovation projects funded by voter-approved bonds. The community has demonstrated support of district projects by approving a $141.5M bond in 2004 and a $261.6M bond in May 2008. Heery, International, Inc. was contracted to manage the district's Capital Projects. Click here to view the district's 2018-2023 Capital Facilities Plan.

Our community stepped up time and again with  generous contributions of time, knowledge, and other resources to make the new schools possible. Hundreds of parents, students, teachers, support staff, and community members met together to determine everything from the schools' boundaries, educational specifications, and building design to school names, mascots, and colors.
