2019 Bond Summit
Following recommendations that the Long Range Planning Committee made to the School Board in January, the West Linn-Wilsonville School District held a Community Bond Summit on February 23, inviting more than 200 community members to participate in a day of bond-related activities. The purpose of the Bond Summit is to educate the community and also solicit feedback and input for the School Board to consider.
Bond Summit participants consisted of parent and teacher representation from all 16 WLWV schools, including Three Rivers Charter School, as well as West Linn-Wilsonville students, administrators, and classified staff. Community members in attendance also consisted of School Board Members, both West Linn and Wilsonville Mayors, West Linn and Wilsonville City Council Members, West Linn and Wilsonville City Staffs, representatives from the Education Foundation and Music and Arts Partners, local senators and state representatives, First Student Bus Company, West Linn-Wilsonville Long Range Planning Committee and Budget Committee members, district operations staff, local librarians, and many more.
While Board and Long Range Planning Committee discussions have been ongoing for the past couple of months, the Bond Summit signals the beginning of a potential Capital Bond. The Board will continue to solicit community input in coming months through polling and surveying, with the possibility of a Capital Bond going on the November Clackamas County Election Ballot. On behalf of the School Board, and District, thank you to every community member who participated in the 2019 Bond Summit.
