Task Force Gives Facilities Presentation To D21 Board D21

The North Wasco County School District 21 board received ideas for a new high school from a community school facilities task force.  The group presented three main concepts for a new high school, one at the current Wahtonka campus, one on a hilltop site south of Columbia Gorge Community College, and a site on Highway 30 that would require a National Scenic Area plan amendment from the Columbia River Gorge Commission.  All three come with pros and cons, and D-21 Superintendent Candy Armstrong says the district board will look for more community input and will discuss the subject in January.  The task force acknowledged other facility needs for D-21, but in its presentation said it felt the location of a new high school will subsequently reveal opportunities for resolving elementary school problems, and also presented concepts for an early learning center.  The group would like to see D-21 seek a bond measure in November 2016 to take advantage of eight million dollars in matching funds from the state.
