WAYLAND UNION SCHOOLS
2022 BOND PROGRAM

 

ABOUT 

On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, voters in the Wayland Union Schools District will be asked to consider a bond proposal that would result in district-wide facility improvements at no expected tax rate increase. 

 

The proposal comes as a result of in-depth evaluations by district leaders, staff and community members to create a long-term strategic plan that identifies the current and future needs of district facilities.

 

If approved,  bond program would generate
$48.5 million and create more opportunities for our students and community members. 
The bond is tax neutral, meaning the current 8.4 debt mills collected are not expected to be increased.
