Bond Planning

In early 2022 North Wasco County School District created a Community Bond Planning Advisory group to help prepare and inform a potential bond measure in May of 2023.

The Community Bond Development Committee will meet to discuss the school district’s safety and educational needs, as well as help, identify and prioritize capital improvement projects. As a community-driven process, this committee is made up of school staff, parents, and community and business partners. 


Committee Dates:
  • June 1st at The Dalles Middle School
  • September 21st at The Wahtonka Campus
  • October 19th at The Dalles High School
all meetings are from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
