The North Thurston unanimously voted Tuesday night to put a $175 million construction bond on the Feb. 11 ballot.

If approved, the measure would leverage an additional $50 million in state funding, according to a fact sheet from the district.

The money would be used to build a new middle school and modernize or upgrade North Thurston High School, River Ridge High School, Evergreen Forest Elementary School, Komachin Middle School and Pleasant Glade Elementary School. The money would also pay to fix deteriorating roofs and make other improvements at other schools.

North Thurston’s last construction bond measure passed in 2006.
