Bond Development Process

South Kitsap School District developed a bond for voter consideration in November 2023. The process for finalizing the bond package was thoughtful and relied on feedback from the community, staff, and families. The timeline took place over several months and is shown to the right.

The Bond Steering Committee's work followed the work of the Long Range Facility Planning Committee's development of the Facility Rebuilding Plan. The Steering Committee was the engine behind the development of a comprehensive bond to take to the community.

Assess  -  Plan  -  Fund  -  Build

The assessment phase was conducted by the Long Range Facility Planning Committee and concluded with the development of a thorough recommendation that was delivered to the School Board in April 2022.

The planning phase was led by the Bond Steering Committee. They hosted several community engagement events and feedback opportunities. The community was asked to share ideas for districtwide improvements and repairs along with their thoughts on the sites identified as the most urgent for replacement. Several community meetings were held and feedback was incorporated into the Bond proposal.
