District 622 bond request passes to support school improvements districtwide

  • May 14, 2019 -- North St. Paul: Residents of School District 622 voted 3,491 YES (61.1%) to 2,220 NO (38.9%) to support the district’s request to fund school improvements across the district. The improvements would provide safe, up-to-date, and healthy learning environments for all students.

    Voters approved a request for a $275 million bond that will be used to:

    • Add secure entrances to all schools
    • Provide all schools with modern furniture and flexible classroom spaces for independent, small group, and large group learning
    • Create healthier learning environments with air quality and other improvements
    • Consolidate and renovate schools for more equitable and efficient schools districtwide

    “We are so grateful to our community for this vote of support,” said Superintendent Christine Osorio. “These improvements will impact students and families for years to come, and ensure that all our schools provide the quality learning environment our community expects and our students deserve.”

    Detailed design planning will begin soon, with the goal of opening new buildings in the fall of 2022. The result will be:

    • Nine elementary schools consolidated into seven larger, renovated schools
    • Three middle schools reduced to two renovated schools, to align with our two high schools

    While the project costs funded by the bonds total $275 million, the tax impact on the average homeowner ($200,000 value home) will only be $5 per month due to old debt the district is paying off.

    “Our staff worked hard over the past few years to identify our district’s facilities needs and develop a plan that prepares our schools for the future while making us more efficient as a district,” said School Board Chair Michelle Yener. “We greatly appreciate all the input our staff and community provided along the way that made this into the comprehensive plan it is.”

    The district will engage the community in the boundary change process that will be the result of the school consolidations. Boundary changes won’t take effect until fall 2022 when the updated and new buildings open.
