SUTHERLIN, Ore. -- The Sutherlin School District is looking to make some major upgrades to all four of their school buildings, but they’re trying to figure out how to pay for it.

In May 2018, Sutherlin voters shot down a $42.5 million bond to address the upgrades.

According to district documents, the district wants to upgrade fire alarms, security systems, parking lots and building infrastructure.
It says the upgrades could cost the district more than $2 million.

Documents also say they’re looking into replacing the entire West Intermediate School building, which could cost more than $47 million.

“We’re pretty excited about what we’re looking at and really asking the public what they might or might not support,” Superintendent Terry Prestianni said.

Prestianni also said the district is in their early stages of planning and budgeting, so nothing is set in stone.

Board members have been meeting since July to talk about how to approach the bond a second time around.

The Sutherlin School District has another work session scheduled for Oct. 7.
