YES on Mercer Island School Bonds
Mercer Island School District will place a bond measure on the April 17, 2012 ballot requesting authority to finance rebuilding and modernizing school facilities over a five to eight-year period.
The recently completed 21st Century Facilities Master Plan forms the guiding vision for those improvements, a plan created in 2011 with extensive community involvement and is a component of a 4 year research and planning effort orchestrated by the School Board and MISD Administration.
Our schools are over capacity and overcrowded
More kids are on the way and our aging schools can’t accommodate them all.
Solve the Capacity Crisis
Our schools are falling behind surrounding communities
Our attractiveness as a community is based on the quality of our schools, and that is in peril.
This plan delivers the right solution at the least cost to taxpayers
Considered over the long term, it makes no sense to further expand and remodel 55-year-old facilities. Surrounding school districts don’t do it, and neither should we. This 5 to 8-year rebuilding program will produce school facilities for the next generation.
The Right Solution at the Right Time
