Walla Walla watches school bond fail

February 12, 2013 

— The bond proposal to modernize Walla Walla High School failed by receiving a 53.3 percent approval Tuesday night and failed to meet the required 60 percent supermajority needed to pass.

The Walla Walla School Board agreed this fall to seek a $48 million bond from voters. The bond would have updated facilities at Walla Walla High School, primarily academic spaces, but also some for career and technical education, or CTE, the arts and athletics.

Walla Walla School District Superintendent Mick Miller in a press release thanked the staff, parents, students and community volunteers for helping inform the community about the proposal.

No decisions have been made regarding future bond proposals, the release said.
