2019 CAPITAL Bond Projects

On February 12, 2019, the PSD community passed a $198.55 million bond for school construction to address extreme elementary overcrowding and other emergent infrastructure needs. 

The projects identified in the bond included replacement of Artondale and Evergreen Elementary Schools, construction of Swift Water Elementary located on Harbor Hill Drive across from the YMCA and construction of Pioneer Elementary located on Skansie Avenue.

After elementary overcrowding and emergent facility needs, addressing middle school overcrowding was identified as the district’s next highest priority. 

Because of cost-saving steps made by the district, additional state assistance for Swift Water Elementary, and an accelerated construction schedule for the elementary projects, we will also be able to modernize and add additional classrooms at Kopachuck Middle School and Key Peninsula Middle School using 2019 capital bond funds. 

The 2019 bond provides quality, flexible spaces for learning and future growth for PSD’s schools. This would not have been possible without the support of our voters. Thank you!

Bond funds can only be spent on purchasing property for schools, constructing new schools, or modernizing existing schools.
