Roseburg Voters to Face Bond Levy

ROSEBURG, Ore. — Voters will have the opportunity to vote on a measure this spring that may help keep the school district from closing an elementary school.

The district’s board approved a bond levy for the May ballot that would raise $6 million over five years. A citizens group made up of parents and citizens will be required to gather support for the measure.

The board also narrowed its list from four to two of schools it’s considering shutting down at the end of this school year.

That list now only includes Melrose and Rose Elementary Schools. The board expects to choose the particular school to close next month.

If voters do approve the bond levy, it will help generate much needed dollars. However, board members wouldn’t guarantee it would keep one of the schools from closing.
