How is Fife Public Schools preparing for the future?

The fast-growing Fife School District is ensuring our students have room to learn in safe, well-maintained buildings. We are considering a capital construction bond, along with our annual educational programs and operations levy renewal, in February 2018.

Our schools are growing!

  • We have 3,600 students in our district and we are growing by 3 percent every year.
  • That’s up to three new classrooms a year.
  • Fife School District needs additional funding from a capital construction bond to ensure all our students have room to learn.

Fife students need more space to learn.

  • We are currently housing students in 19 portable classrooms.
  • That’s almost an entire school of portables.
  • A bond measure would allow us to add much-needed classroom space.

Our buildings are aging.

  • We need to ensure our school buildings are well-maintained for the safety and security of our students and staff.
  • A maintenance and operations levy and a capital bond would fund much-needed repair to our aging buildings, in addition to adding classrooms space with new buildings or remodeling.

We are planning together for Fife’s future.

A Capital Facilities Advisory Committee, comprised of parents, community members and staff, is looking at the facility needs of our district, enrollment growth and the age of buildings. CFAC will make a recommendation to the School Board in mid-November, with a vote expected Nov. 27.

Also on the February 13, 2018 ballot is our annual educational programs and operations levy. This is a four-year levy that replaces the levy that expires in 2018.
