Ashland School Dist. considers bond for education, safety

Ashland, Ore. — The Ashland School District is considering putting a bond on the November ballot. Beginning this week, they’re asking for the community’s opinion on what the money should be spent on.

According to the School District, the goal of the potential bond is to help improve schools in and outside of the classroom. Everything from education to facility upgrades and changes in technology are being considered. Safety and security are climbing higher on the list as well.

“It makes sense,” Cami Moynihan said, a local parent. “I think we need to talk about this, considering all the school shootings and what’s been going on, I think it’s clearly, sadly, a relative issue.”

The community is invited to give input in a series of community meetings. They are scheduled for the following times:

  • Tuesday, February 27, from 6:00-7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 3 from 12:00 noon-1:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, March 7 from 6:00-7:30 p.m.
