Capital Projects Bond

To ensure students have space for success in our growing district, Northshore asked voters to consider a $275 million capital projects bond. The district uses bonds to build schools and major additions, which are not covered by the state budget.

This bond was designed by the Capital Bond Planning Task Force to help ease overcrowding now, while also planning for the future growth of the district. Capital Bond Planning Task Force work is underway to plan for a future ballot measure.

Thanks to voter's approval on Feb. 13, 2018, the bond is funding the following:

  • Safety and security upgrades at every school in the District
  • A new K-5 school near Maltby: Ruby Bridges Elementary 
  • 30 additional classrooms at the Skyview Middle School and Canyon Creek Elementary School campus
  • District performing arts and instructional building located at Inglemoor High School, ensuring accessibility and equity among high schools
  • Maintenance and operations upgrades at many schools
  • Improved outdoor instructional spaces

The capital project helps support Strategic Plan goals of:

  • Success in the early years
  • Responsible, resilient, empathetic learners
  • Innovative, creative, critical thinkers
  • Ready for lifelong success after graduation
  • Growth for every student, elimination of outcome and opportunity gaps
