Safety and Security Are Urgent Priorities
- Single points of entry to better control who enters and leaves our children’s campuses.
- Cameras and upgrading of security features help keep students and staff safe in an emergency.
- Purchase property and construct a new middle school out of the Tsunami zone to provide a disaster shelter and relief site for all children and community members in case of emergency.
Need to Address Overcrowding
- Our district area is growing rapidly and our grade school is already overcrowded. In fact, Warrenton-Hammond School District has the 6th largest K-8 school in Oregon despite being only the 91st largest district in the state.
- The bond will allow for the improvement and replacement of aging, inefficient portable classrooms with permanent classroom spaces.
- As part of a long-range vision, the district has plans to build a high school and grade school on the new property in the future.
Critical Investments In Needed Repairs
This bond measure will allow the school district to make important large-scale repairs to all of our school buildings:
- Scheduled improvements include siding, paint, window and roof replacement
- Energy efficiency efforts to extend the life of our buildings
- Paving driveways and crosswalks to enhance student safety to and from schools
- ADA upgrades to accommodate students with special needs
Career and Technical Education for Future Jobs
The Warrenton Hammond School District is doing everything it can to give our students a competitive edge for college and career:
- Leveraging the investment from a $436,000 state grant, the bond will pay for improved career education and equipment for programs like welding, high tech training, and automotive repair
- Bond will improve science and technology spaces for all students in the district
