2006 Capital Bond Projects
The 2006 bond provided $198.9 million for projects to modernize aging facilities, construct a new elementary school, acquire property for a new middle and elementary school, upgrade information technology operations system, and provide improvement to facilities and sites. These projects include modernization of the Everett HS gymnasium and Little Theater, a new elementary school, Forest View ES; modernization of Garfield ES, Jefferson ES, Monroe ES, Silver Lake ES, View Ridge ES and Whittier ES; and other upgrades and equipment replacements to facilities and sites.
