The $93-million school bond that will be on the May ballot really won't cost you another dime. 


Neil Bryant - the co-chair of the Bend La Pine Schools Bond Committee says a lot of research has gone into the decision to ask for the bond - that will replace another bond that is about to be paid off. 


 "Because we're trying to be proactive; we're trying to plan. We know there's a need now and there'll be a greater need. So, would you rather wait 3 years and try to do something? It’s a nice point that your taxes won't go up; although it's a new tax, it's replacing one that's expiring. So hopefully the voter will say: 'that's fair, this is a great investment.' helps economic development, jobs through construction. And good schools attract businesses too." 


Bryant says the funding will build a new elementary and middle school is the projected growth area - upgrade classrooms for science, technology, engineering, arts and math classrooms  and implement safety improvements.
