Sultan Bond 2024

Our Story.

On February 13, 2024, Sultan Schools is asking the community to consider a Capital Bond to address our growing capacity. The bond package was proposed to the Board of Directors by the Citizen Facility Advisory Committee (CFAC) and approved! The district is projected to grow by 340 students by 2032. To accommodate student growth, the Capital Bond has 4 components.

What's proposed:

Gold Bar Elementary

#1: Gold Bar Elementary (GBE) addition and modernization for Grades PreK-4

Cost: $29,085,431

Sultan Elementary School (SES) Arieal View

#2: Sultan Elementary School (SES) cosmetic upgrades and convert to Grades 5-6

Cost: $2,658,486

New Sultan School Property

#3: NEW Elementary School built on Sultan Basin Road with Grades PreK-4

Cost: $47,972,345

Old Transportation/Operations Department Picture

Old Transportation and Operations Demo

Cost: $278,738

Other Components...

  • Once complete, Sultan Middle School (SMS) would serve grades 7 & 8 only!

  • SES's enrollment would reduce from 640 to 315 5th and 6th grade

    students.

  • Portables from SES and from GBE would be REMOVED!

Why a bond?

K-12 school districts in the state of Washington do not receive state funding to renovate old buildings or build new facilities unless the community approves a bond. If the 2024 bond passes, we would qualify for $11,000,000 from the School Construction Assistance Program.  

What will it cost?

To build a new elementary school, ease overcrowding and update school safety and security for students, Sultan School District is asking the community to consider a $79,995,000 Capital Projects Bond.
