Walla Walla High school plans get airing


WALLA WALLA — A small crowd gathered in the Walla Walla High School auditorium Wednesday night to hear Walla Walla Public Schools Superintendent Mick Miller review plans for updating the district’s two high schools.

In just over an hour, Miller covered the district’s plans to update Wa-Hi by expanding classroom space throughout the campus, making buildings more energy efficient and through other changes.

The proposed project that Miller reviewed is estimated to cost taxpayers about $47 million.

A proposal to either remodel or rebuild the district’s smaller Lincoln High School would cost about $8 million, with a potential bond tackling both schools costing about $55 million.

Miller will likely make a recommendation to the Walla Walla School Board in November on whether to seek a bond early next year.

A bond could be sought in a special election to be held either in February or April.

The small group of attendees for the information session included district staff and supporters.
