Greater Albany Public Schools – Bond Information

May 2017 election: Greater Albany voters approved a $159 million capital construction bond to update and improve school facilities and construct additions to relieve crowding and improve instructional space.

Additional funds: The district was awarded a $6.9 million capital construction matching grant by the state of Oregon after the bond was approved by voters (because of this the Board chose to only sell $152 million in bonds), and favorable bond sales resulted in additional $28.5 million additional funds, bringing the total bond program up to $187 million for facility projects.

Bond projects: Improvements are planned for all schools. New CTE classrooms are planned for all middle and high schools. A new elementary school, Meadow Ridge, will be constructed near Timber Ridge, Oak Grove Elementary School will be demolished and rebuilt, and the first phase of the replacement of West Albany High School will be completed.

All projects are expected to be finished by 2021.
