Bond 2017 (SHS, LHHS, LA, SAR, MAINT)
For the past two years the district has obtained input from community members, staff and students on plans to replace Stanwood High School and to provide a new facility to house Lincoln Hill High School, Lincoln Academy and Saratoga School. The Stanwood-Camano School District's Board of Directors approved a resolution to put a bond measure on the February 14, 2017 ballot. The proposition, "Bonds to Construct, Renovate and Improve School Facilities" would not increase taxes for property owners.

What is the capacity of the proposed high school replacement?
We have reviewed the school capacity information provided by Chris Lilley, McGranahan Architect, and have also discussed this matter with him, personally. Here's what we found out:
- The proposed school replaces all of the existing teaching stations, whether presently used or not.
- Based on our current SHS enrollment of 1200 students, the school would be at 58% capacity.
- Normal high school capacities max out at approximately 83%.
- At 83% efficiency, the proposed school would have room for approximately 1700 students.
- At full capacity of 1700, all teaching stations would be utilized and class sizes would be at the recommended maximum.
