Board calls bond election

The aging Bremerton Junior High building may be vacated by students if the voters this spring approve an estimated $29 million in bond projects for the Bremerton School District.

The Bremerton School Board voted unanimously approved the resolution at its Nov. 18 meeting.

If approved the measure would:

• Add a wing to Bremerton High School for the ninth graders.

• Add a wing to Mountain View Middle School for the eighth grade students.

• Support improvements to the district’s infrastructure.

• Demolish the Olympic View elementary school, the maintenance building and portions of Bremerton Junior High not being used by the district.

The move “provides facilities as we look to the future to meet future needs” said DeWayne Boyd, board president.

The board had looked at three options – one estimated at $47 million and one for the about $12 million.
