Everett School District announces second round of community bond planning meetings

Following the September 11th and 12th focus groups about high school needs, the September 16th and 18th open house sessions look at school construction needs for all grades in order to plan for a voter-approved 2014 bond issue.

From an Everett Public Schools news release.

Following the September 11th and 12th focus groups about high school needs, the September 16th and 18th Everett Public Schools open house sessions look at school construction needs for all grades in order to plan for a voter-approved 2014 bond issue.

In the next decade, an extra 1,400 students are expected to be attending Everett Public Schools.  That would push the number of students enrolled to more than 20,000. Most of that growth is happening in the south end of the district where construction of single-family homes and apartments has resumed.

The district and school board have been following construction and enrollment trends for the last two years in preparation for a possible February 2014 construction bond. Two meetings on September 11th and 12th sought community insight about high school classroom needs.

On September 16th and 18th from 6-8 p.m. interested residents are encouraged to visit drop-in, open house sessions about Everett Public Schools construction plans. These "drop in" events give all who attend a chance to review the possible capital bond projects and share perspectives about future school facilities needs in the district. District staff and consultants will be on hand to talk with community members, answer questions, and receive input.
