Address Health, Safety and Security

If the proposed measure passes, North Bend School District would repair or replace locks, front entries, and security systems. If passed, access points and entryways would be renovated.

The proposed bond measure would include proposed health, safety, and security projects for all North Bend School District schools. School nurse health spaces would be updated and expanded. If passed, the proposed measure would fund removal of asbestos and address air quality with new heating and ventilation systems.

Modernize & Update Aging School Buildings

The average age of a school in the North Bend School District is 59 years. Some schools are over 70 years old that have aging electrical, heating, lighting and cooling systems. 

If passed, the proposed bond measure would fund new HVAC systems, plumbing, and electrical systems to help reduce costs and provide district-wide energy efficiencies. The proposed bond measure, if passed, would fund new roofs, flooring, and windows at some schools.

Expand Hands On Learning & Student Career Pathways

Education is changing. Students are now able to seek a variety of college and career pathways through the addition of vocational programs and job training programs.

If passed, the proposed bond measure would expand vocational programs such as culinary, health services, metalworking, construction and graphic arts. If passed, the proposed bond measure would fund science lab upgrades to North Bend High School and North Bend Middle school, expanding programs such as anatomy, physiology and medical terminology for students pursuing health services or trades careers.

Proposed Bond Cost

The district estimates that the proposed $48.3 million bond, if passed, would increase the tax rate by .77 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.

In addition, the State of Oregon has awarded the North Bend School District a matching funds grant of $4 million to help fund bond projects. The District would only receive the grant if the proposed bond measure passes.

An independent, citizen-led Bond Oversight Committee will be established to oversee the use of bond funds if the bond passes.
