Community Bond Advisory Committee Process

The Molalla River School District established a Community Bond Advisory Committee comprised of community members, plus necessary administrative and support staff, to consider options for submitting a potential capital construction bond to voters in May 2024.

The charge of the Advisory Committee was to consider various options for a new bond proposal. The committee met January-December 2023 tol:

  • Review the facilities needs identified in the District’s Facilities Assessment;

  • Consider options for financing a potential bond, including amount of bond and length of payback period;

  • Develop a timeline and long-term plan for addressing capital improvement projects relating to facilities needs;

  • Consider community feedback in creating the recommendation; and

  • Recommend to the School Board a potential bond package that could be submitted to voters.

The committee made a final recommendation to the School Board, but will have no independent authority to obligate District funds or issue directions to the District’s administration. The committee’s recommendations will be used to inform decisions made by the Superintendent and the School Board.
