Building Our Future | 2022 Bond Campaign
Thank you for your interest in the 2022 Oak Harbor Public Schools Bond. This bond package is unlike any other presented to the Oak Harbor community.
On February 8, 2022, Oak Harbor Public Schools will request the passage of a bond package totaling $323 million. Thankfully, Oak Harbor Public Schools is set to receive nearly $140 million from the state and the Department of Defense. The Oak Harbor community will need to agree to pay for the remaining balance of roughly $184 million. In 2006, Oak Harbor voters passed the bond election. Currently, the rate of this bond is a rate of $1.79 per $1,000 of assessed property value. That bond will be completely paid off by December of 2022, meaning this is a replacement bond.
This is not to be confused with the local levy that was passed in 2021. Local levies are particularly powerful due to local control. However, in order to build new schools, the voters must agree to a bond package. We have compiled all of the pertinent information to make sure you're informed when casting your vote.
