Forest Grove School District

2022 Proposed Bond Measure 34-320

About the Bond

It has been nearly 12 years since the passage of the last bond measure in the Forest Grove School District. In that time, the number of students in our classrooms has increased, safety and security concerns have changed, and basic systems like electrical, heating, plumbing and roofs are aging and do not function as designed in some schools.

Address Safety and Security

Forest Grove schools provide many points of entry for visitors and the general public, including multiple exterior doors that open directly to classrooms and fire safety systems that are over 30 years old. 

Repair & Update Aging School Buildings

The average age of a school in Forest Grove School District is 46 years. Four schools are over 75 years old and have aging roofs, electrical, heating, cooling, and plumbing systems that have reached the end of their usable life. 


Early Childhood Education

Demand for pre-kindergarten has grown in the Forest Grove School District, but there is limited space to meet this demand for early childhood education. 

Increased Demand for Hands-On Learning

The district offers students a variety of college and career pathways through vocational and job training programs. However, the district currently lacks the space to expand these courses.

Cornelius Elementary

Cornelius Elementary built in 1945 - the second oldest school in district - has failing building systems, is at student capacity and has security issues with 7 classrooms that can only be accessed from outside the building and nearly every classroom has exterior doors that directly open to the non-secured area of the school campus.
