Enumclaw School District Bond on April Ballot

The Enumclaw School District will have a bond measure on the April ballot this year. The bond will:
  • Erect a two-story, secure and enclosed structure on the Enumclaw High School campus that will replace aging classrooms, the library, science labs, music facility, auditorium and gymnasium. This replacement structure would dovetail into the remodeled commons, offices, and art and automotive wing (2000) creating a more secure facility for students, guests and staff.

  • Build a new, two-story Black Diamond Elementary School at the current location, replacing the aging structure and bringing students and staff together under one roof for a safe and uniform learning environment.
This bond proposes renewing the existing bond that built Thunder Mountain Middle School. In October 2014, the tax rate for the existing bond was $1.60/$1000 of home value. The bond that is being proposed will be at a rate of $1.60/$1000 of home value – not one penny more.  Renewing the bond that built TMMS will generate $68,555,000. Because of the high need, these two projects (Enumclaw High School and Black Diamond Elementary School) also qualify for $18.1 million in state construction match money. The total budget combining these two funding sources would be $86,655,000.

The bond measure will need a 60% supermajority to pass. Once the measure is approved, the school district will finalize plans and begin to seek building permits. Construction at both facilities will begin in July 2016. Black Diamond Elementary School will be completed in September 2017. Enumclaw High School will be completed over two phases with the first phase completed in September 2017 and the second phase completed in September 2018.
