Thank you for supporting the West Linn-Wilsonville School District in our on-going work toward excellence in education.
Capital Construction Bond, November 2008
The West Linn - Wilsonville Schools continue to experience steady annual growth. The school district has nearly doubled in size over the past 20 years. The District enrollment is now at 8300 students. A projected annual increase of 1.5% will grow the enrollment to approximately 9200 students in 2015. The District enrollment currently exceeds facility capacity. There are 14 portable classrooms housing 400 students across the District.
The School Board, in conjunction with a community Bond Summit and input from the citizen Long Range Planning Committee, has developed a $98-million bond that would provide current and future students with equitable and quality programs in safe and efficient learning environments.
This Capital Bond would provide for:
Two new primary schools; a 500 student school in Wilsonville and a 300 student school in West Linn. The expenditure planning for these schools includes all architectural design, permits, site development, furniture, technology, library, and playground equipment. Each school will be fully equipped and ready to receive students upon completion. The new primary in Wilsonville and the new primary in West Linn would open in 2012.
Library/media additions at Cedaroak Park Primary and Stafford Primary; and, library renovations at Boeckman Creek Primary, Bolton Primary, and Wood Middle School.
Kitchen renovations at Stafford Primary, Cedaroak Park Primary, Bolton Primary, Boeckman Creek Primary and Wood Middle School plus cafeteria renovation at Stafford, Cedaroak and Bolton primary schools.
Technology upgrades in all schools including computers for instructional use, infrastructure, and annual replacement of outdated technology over a 4 year period.
Deferred maintenance in all school district facilities. This component would address: safety, equity, energy conservation, health and wellness, roofs, playgrounds, parking lots and handicap accessibility.
Planning and architectural design for the replacement of Sunset Primary school and site master planning for a future middle school in Wilsonville. Community involvement is a key component of this activity.
Athletic field improvements for Women's Softball at both high schools, Baseball at WLHS, and Tennis at WHS. All weather turf and proposed lighting would be added to the Rosemont Ridge sports field. These additions are expected to create significant savings in annual watering and maintenance costs, and increase participation opportunities for the community.
