WALLOWA, OR – On May 18th, Wallowa School District will be asking voters to fund upgrades to their schools.  If passed, the $7 million dollar bond measure would be matched from the Oregon Department of Education by $4 million dollars.  Some of the projects include upgrading the boiler, electrical as well as repairs to the elementary school and gym.  The bond measure would be less costly than a replacement of a new building, with an estimated cost of $54 million dollars.  The proposed bond measure would get the essential upgrades done according to school board personnel.  The last time major upgrades were done was in 1993.
