The Washington School District’s two-part bond issue measure — Prop R, Right Now for Children — has received two additional endorsements.
Monday night, members of the Washington City Council voted unanimously to endorse the proposition after listening to a presentation by members of the Citizens for Great Schools Committee.
Also Monday night, the East Central College Foundation Executive Board members voiced their support for the measure.
Other endorsements to date include:
• Washington Optimist Club;
• Washington Civic Industrial Corp.;
• WINGS Foundation Board;
• Washington Area Chamber of Commerce Board;
• Washington Fair Board;
• 353 Redevelopment Corp.;
• Parent-teacher groups in the district’s elementary division and middle school.
The two-part ballot issue will be on the April 2 election ballot.
Question One is for a $9 million bond issue with a no-tax rate increase for wireless infrastructure for classrooms districtwide, construction of an early childhood center, classroom additions at Marthasville Elementary and HVAC improvements at Augusta Elementary.
The second question seeks approval of a $40 million bond issue with a 25-cent tax rate increase to construct and equip a new middle school on the now vacant property the district owns on east Highway 100, and renovate the current middle school into a K-5 elementary school.
