School Bond Information & Updates

This page will provide news and updates on the Astoria Schools construction bond that was passed in the fall of 2018. 


ASTORIA SCHOOL DISTRICT BOND RATING IMPROVES

This past week, Moody’s Investors Service upgraded Astoria School District General Obligation Bond rating to A1. This vote of confidence will improve the District’s ability to have investors interested in our facility bonds when we go to sale later this month. The increase in confidence from Moody’s reflects the district’s commitment to financial sustainability, while providing an excellent education for all students.

With nearly 63% of the vote in November, Astoria voters approved over $70 million in funds to make critical investments in safety and security, needed repairs and energy efficiencies, replacement of the diamond wing of Astoria Middle School, and investments in vocational and technical education.

As part of a long-term commitment to the community, the Astoria School District Board of Directors is engaging in outreach to parents and the broader community through all phases of bond project design and construction.
