The La Grande School Board is considering a bond measure in May 2022 to pay for replacing the Annex and the Maintenance/Facilities/Grounds building located at La Grande Middle School with a new multi-purpose academic and athletic center.

Based on the recommendations from our Facilities Study Committee; The La Grande School Board is considering a bond measure in May 2022 to address the following facility needs:

  1. Replace the Annex and build a multi-use athletic and academic center on or next to the existing site. 
  2. Relocate Maintenance/Grounds/Facilities and their services and equipment from the Annex to a different site. 
  3. Update the mechanical and HVAC systems at Willow School, which houses the La Grande Virtual Learning Academy, the district’s Home Link program and the district administrative office.

Because the district recently refinanced the bond passed in 2014, this refinance allowed our bond debt to be restructured as well as create savings for taxpayers.  By forgoing a decrease in the bond levy rate and maintaining existing tax payments, there is potential to significantly improve and develop facilities in our community without increasing taxes or adding years to service our bond debt.
