November 2020 Bond Measure

The proposed $27.5 million bond measure is estimated not to increase the current tax rate. Redmond School District will upgrade and update all of our schools to provide healthy, safe, and secure campuses that are modern and efficient. The district will expand the student capacity and prepare for future growth by building 6 additional classrooms at both Vern Patrick Elementary School and Tom McCall Elementary School.

Why is the district asking voters to approve a school bond?
