Planning and study sessions were held leading up to a decision by the Washington Board of Education to go back to voters to seek approval of a bond issue to make physical plant improvements. A $49 million bond issue will be on the April 2013 ballot which would require a 25-cent property tax increase.

The new proposal has been scaled back from an earlier bond issue for $65 million and a 46-cent tax hike that voters rejected last April. It has been termed a compromise because it addresses the most needed improvements and is part of the district’s long-range plan. The new proposal does not include the building of a new elementary school or some renovation projects at Washington High School.
