Enrollment growth in the Puyallup School District is creating a crisis in our schools. There is a demand for more classrooms because of the growing population.
Now the 8th largest school district in Washington, the Puyallup School district serves more than 22,250 students.
Demographers project that the growth will continue, with an additional 1,600 students arriving in Puyallup schools over the next five years. Most of that growth – 1,050 children – is projected at the elementary level.
In response to this crisis, the school board has agreed to place a school bond on the November 3, 2015 General Election ballot. The proposed $292.5 million bond measure will address the need for elementary school classroom space.
The five proposed projects on the bond would create additional instructional space for 2,720 elementary students.
Puyallup students are counting on US to ensure that they have the learning spaces they need. Great communities have great schools, and today’s students deserve to grow up in a great community.
Vote YES! Puyallup.
