On May 21, 2013 citizens of Bend, La Pine and Sunriver approved a ballot measure, with the highest percentage YES vote in history, to build new schools and fund projects that protect our community's investment in its schools and facilities. These projects will support economic growth and prosperity and go far to protect our quality of life now and for future generations.
The approved bond measure includes $96 million to fund numerous construction projects, including two new schools — Silver Rail Elementary School in southeast Bend and Pacific Crest Middle School in northwest Bend.
