Gresham-Barlow School District is awaiting the decision of voters on Bond Measure 26-153 on the November 2013 ballot. This $210 million bond would fund much-needed renovations and upgrades in many schools throughout the district. Some of the top items on the wish list are:
Building upgrades and renovations including new windows, roofing, walls and getting rid of portable classrooms
Technology and resource upgrades
Add security systems and replace existing classroom locks
Included in the bond measure is the closure, or “repurposing”, of West Gresham Elementary School and the closure Damascus Middle School and moving those students to Deep Creek Elementary School where the new school would be a K-8 school.
