Better schools for Peninsula's children

<I>Renderings by Trent Hart, BJSS Duarte Bryant Architects</I>

Tuesday's vote on a proposed $23 million school construction bond for Peninsula children could result in top-to-bottom renovation of three nearly worn-out facilities in Ilwaco, Ocean Park and Long Beach. Hilltop School in Ilwaco, above, which is 67 years old, will become a middle school under the bond plan. Seventy-year-old Ocean Park Elementary, below, would be the first facility to be renovated, with its students being bussed to Long Beach for about two years. Long Beach Elementary, bottom, is the youngster of the three at 39 years of age. The bond includes much work in bringing all three schools up to modern code requirements, in addition to major improvements in the educational environment. It's important to note that these three conceptual drawings are preliminary and doubtless will change following extensive public input if the bond passes. See Page B6 for polling times, places and legal details concerning the bond.
