Booming Bethel school district hoping voters say ‘yes’ to new and expanded schools
PIERCE COUNTY, Wash.-- Educators and Parents in the Bethel School District in Pierce County are hoping the fourth time is the charm when it comes to a construction bond on the ballot next week. The $443 million bond would build three new schools and renovate and expand several more in a rapidly growing part of Western Washington. But, they're already taking some pretty serious measures to combat the classroom overcrowding.
