2012 Bond Projects

On May 15, 2012, voters in David Douglas overwhelmingly approved a $49.5 million bond measure to perform repairs and renovations on buildings. The bond was financially structured to replace an expiring District bond, resulting in no tax increase for District residents. The majority of these projects will be done over the next 3-5 years and include roofing, flooring, HVAC and safety upgrades. Major projects include an Early Child Education Center at Earl Boyles, to be built in partnership with private and other public funding sources, as well as a renovated or rebuilt swimming pool.

A 12-member citizen’s Bond Oversight Committee was appointed in July by the School Board to follow the progress of bond projects, providing the School Board with a citizen advisory group to assure that bond projects and spending conform to what was proposed in the bond measure.

In this section, you will find a list of proposed bond projects, the roster of the Bond Oversight Committee, summaries of their meetings, photos and updates of bond projects and other information about the bond. It will be regularly updated.
