Capital Construction Projects

In 2010, voters approved a $74 million Technology and Capital Projects Levy, which includes funding for large-scale maintenance projects such as roofs and flooring, as well as mechanical, electrical, water and sewer systems on older facilities; upgrades to Ringdall Middle School to house middle school students whose schools are being remodeled; and improvements or replacements of school sports fields.

In 2008, voters approved a $545 million bond that allows the District to rebuild three additional elementary schools, modernize the two remaining regular high schools, make improvements to three middle schools and, if funds remain, complete projects, such as adding a multipurpose room, to two other elementary schools.  Each facility is being brought to common educational and architectural standards that will reduce the cost of operating and maintaining school facilities as well as provide the optimal learning environment for students.

In February 2002, the voters of the Bellevue School District approved the sale of $324 million dollars in Unlimited General Obligation Bonds with a 73% approval rate.  This approval allowed the district to demolish and rebuild eight of its 16 elementary schools, make improvements to accomodate growth at several elementary schools, and significantly modernize two of its four main high schools.
