The Washington school board approved a bond sale worth around $3.8 million at a special meeting Wednesday night.
District Business Manager Jeff Dieleman said the sale will finance the in-progress construction at Lincoln Elementary, installing a geothermal HVAC system, additional parking and playground upgrades.
“With interest at 2.07%, it’s about the exact cost of the construction over at the elementary,” Dieleman said.
While the HVAC installation is expected to face minor delays due to rainfall, Dieleman said the in-building work would be complete by the time classes resume to minimize learning disruptions.
