WATCH: Puyallup Superintendent Discusses Upcoming Bond Election

Puyallup superintendent Tim Yeomans talks about the importance of the bond election in February supporting facility and technology improvements in the district.

In this video created by the Puyallup School District, Superintendent Tim Yeomans discusses the importance of the upcoming school bond election and the improvements to come with it, if passed. 

The bond would pay for capital projects in facitilies and technology — mainly new construction and remodeling of existing buildings. The $279.6 million bond package proposes the following projects:

  • Replace two elementary schools
  • Construct an elementary school in the southwest area
  • Expand or remodel other elementary schools
  • Construct a new track and field at Edgemont Junior High
  • Expand or remodel Rogers, Emerald Ridge, and Puyallup high schools
  • Technology improvements to provide students remote access of virtual computers, improve wireless network capacity for staff and students, and purchase student computer equipment and classroom equipment to bring consistency among schools
  • Other capital improvements
