The Chelan School Board unanimously agreed to offer district voters a capital levy on the upcoming February 12 ballot.
The 5-year $6.25 million capital and technical levy will be used to fund a variety of projects within three key target areas: Safety and Maintenance, Growth and Program Needs.
Chelan Superintendent, Rob Manahan, told KOZI News that essentially, the capital levy would replace the current bond that is set to expire this year.
Manahan adds that in the past, the voters have shown support for Chelan schools, and he believes that is, in part, because the district has repeatedly demonstrated good use of taxpayer dollars.
Some of the specific projects planned include upgrading of the HVAC system, security cameras, replacement of worn doors, reconfiguration of the high school entry for public access and security control, playground drainage improvement and new roofing.
