Coos Bay Schools’ Best Bond

The Coos Bay Best Bond Committee has proposed a plan for the May election for our facilities. After much time compiling information from our community and staff, the committee was able to settle on a plan that would substantially upgrade our facilities around the district. The Best Bond Committee is made up of volunteers who have a passion for our kids and our schools.

The plan is a good one and will get us to an educationally sound configuration and have educationally sound facilities. I am excited about this plan and I hope you will all join me in supporting the Best Bond Committee as the real work of campaigning begins. Here is a link to their website: or visit the committee’s Facebook page at Coos Bay Best Bond.
