OAKLAND, OR. -- A group in Oakland is held a community meeting on Wednesday evening to show residents why they need to pass an upcoming school bond.

The $16 million bond measure is on the May ballot.

It would add about $27 a month in taxes for a $150,000 dollar home.

If passed, the district would build a new high school and CTE building.

It would also bring new classrooms to the elementary and middle schools to help with overcrowding.

“The addition of two classrooms onto the elementary school, and two classrooms onto the middle school. We’ve had a steady increase in enrollment in the Oakland School District, and quite frankly, we’ve run out of room. So, that’s the goal with that $16 million bond," said Sandy Henry of the Support Oakland Schools PAC.

Officials say the high school has had constant issues with the foundation and cracks from settling.

It was built in 1948.

The Career Technical Education building is overcrowded, and they want to have enough room to keep all of their machines in the same space.
