Orcas Island School District Bond Measure (November 2012)
This measure seeks to issue a bond in the amount of $11.9 million in order to help pay for renovations to the current school facilities, including the cafeteria and library. If approved, the bond would add $.26 per $1,000 of assessed value to the current district levy and would last for twenty years. This would be the third attempt by the school to get a bond passed in the district, officials are hopeful that residents will see the needs of the schools and help out since this bond is significantly lower than the others.
