Project List School Construction Bond Measure Nov. 5, 2019
Voters have opportunity to keep schools in great working condition, build much-needed new elementary school
Renton School District voters will decide on an important ballot measure to support student learning on the November 5, 2019 ballot. Even with approval of the measure, tax-rates for district property owners will continue to decrease.
Building for Excellence School Building Construction Bond will allow for important projects at nearly every school in the district including:
- construction of a much-needed, additional elementary school in the fast-growing northeastern (Highlands/Sunset/Hazen High) area of the district
- additional science classrooms at high schools
- preschool classrooms
- renovations and upgrades to other schools such as
- roofs and boilers
- safety and security
- school playground and athletic fields
- and much more

Even with approval of the measure on Nov. 5, 2019, tax-rates for all district taxpayers will not increase. Read how here.
Voters overwhelmingly approved this measure on the Feb. 12, 2019 ballot; but an additional 400 votes were needed to validate the measure. With the obvious support of voters, Renton School Board members are providing an opportunity for more voters to vote to approve the measure and will place the measure back on the Nov. 5, 2019 ballot.
