School Facilities Bond Information

Based on the recommendation of a community-based Long Range Facilities Planning Committee, the Corvallis School Board has placed a bond measure on the May 15th ballot to address the aging infrastructure of Corvallis School District facilities.  Details about bond projects are available on the school district website at www.corvallisbond.org.


The 2018 Corvallis School District Bond would address safety and security, relieve crowded schools by replacing 21 portable classrooms with permanent spaces, expanding vocational learning spaces, and providing renovation and repairs in every school in our system.
