2021 Bond Information

2021 Bond Information

The Cascade School District Board of Directors have voted to place a $56.3 million bond measure on the ballot in May of 2021.

The bond measure is designed to improve the safety of all district schools, address community growth, support student career pathways, extend the life of school buildings, and continue the district's fiscal stewardship. This comprehensive bond package will allow the district to make urgent repairs, eliminate safety hazards, and save taxpayer dollars by making schools more efficient. The bond will also allow the school district to continue its tradition of strong and quality schools while preparing for the projected increase in students. The district estimates that the $56.3 million bond measure will increase the current tax rate by $0.92 per $1,000 of taxable assessed value over 25 years of the bond.

In addition, the district has qualified for a $4 million matching grant from the State of Oregon’s OSCIM program. The district will only receive this grant if the measure passes.

If the proposed bond measure passes, Turner Elementary will receive the following:

  • Build six new classrooms to expand student capacity
  • New elevator for ADA compliance
  • Parking lot improvements and new bus loop
  • Update security system
  • Second floor finish upgrades
  • Update mechanical systems and controls
  • Update electrical service
