The Walla Walla school board has decided not to be place another bond measure on the April ballot. Below is a release from the school district:

School members voted to not place a Walla Walla High School bond on the April 23, 2013 ballot. The district would have been required to have a resolution on file by Friday, March 8 for an April bond. No timeline has been set for the next bond election.
School Board President Anne Golden said the district will conduct more public meetings and work sessions to gather input and study additional options for modernizing the 50-year-old school.

"We need to put the Wa-Hi bond on hold and take in more input, said Anne Golden, School Board President. "We need to find out what people would like us to do and how much it is going to cost. We want the support of the community for Wa-Hi."

The Feb. 12 Wa-Hi bond measure received a 53 percent yes count, falling short of the 60 percent Supermajority requirement for approval.
