- YES 1,405 (53.96%)
- NO 1,199 (46.04%)
This measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $26.6 million in order to build new school facilities on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation as well as other various school projects throughout the district. Since it was approved, the school levy will not increase, the bond repayments from two previous levies will be combined and extended to pay for this new bond. School board officials noted the need for more space for students as well as upgrading facilities and technology in order to provide a better learning environment as the main purpose of this new bond.
