Bonds & Levies
We listened to our community.
More than 150 local community members over the past decade have recommended improvements or replacements for PASD schools. They also recommended maximizing dollars from the State, minimize the burden on local taxpayers, and provide a long-range, performance-based plan with a consistent rate. This voter-approved plan does just that, and it begins with the Capital Levy.
Through community support of the Capital Levy program, our district can now make improvements to make our schools safer! Thank you for your commitment and investment.
The Port Angeles Capital Advisory Committee (PACAC) reviews expenditures, develops and reviews designs, and provides feedback to the PASD Board of Directors during the firm selection process.
The PACAC consists of:
• Sarah Methner – School Board President
• Sandy Long – School Board Director
• Marty Brewer – Superintendent
• Nolan Duce – Director of Maintenance and Facilities
• Kristen Lunt – Principal, Stevens Middle School
• Kelsey Orgler – Substitute Teacher, Stevens Middle School
• Melissa McBride – Teacher, Stevens Middle School
• Mike French – Community Member
• Sean Worthington – Community Member
• Steve Methner – Community Member
• Terra Horton – Community Member
Stevens Middle School – Design Advisory Committee Meeting Minutes
We are excited to announce that the PASD Board of Directors unanimously approved the hiring of Integrus + YGH Architecture to manage the design, project execution, and construction for the expansion and renovation of Stevens Middle School!
Integrus will partner with Vanir Construction Management Company and PASD for this project.
To kick off the design phase, Integrus met with Stevens Middle School staff and the Port Angeles Capital Advisory Committee members. During this time, the design team shared their hopes, concerns, and ideas on building the best school for our students, staff, and community! Integrus also spent an entire day at Stevens Middle School to watch how students move throughout the building and use the existing space. They also met with students to hear their ideas about a new school and what matters the most to them.
Monroe Athletic Field Updates
PASD has chosen Vanir, a construction management company that will oversee the building of Monroe Athletic Field and the remodel and expansion of Stevens Middle School. In 2020, our community voted on a capital levy that approved the work of these two great projects.
We completed the field design phase, including a quality synthetic turf field for soccer, football, and fastpitch. This project will also feature a quarter-mile walking path the public can use. High-performance athletic fields are a part of the necessary infrastructure in a high-quality district like Port Angeles, and I can't wait to see our student-athletes in action! The next step in this process is to put the project out to bid after the first of the year. We will break down the project into two bids:
1. Site Work - We hope to hire a local company to do the ground/site work at Monroe Field. We must keep as many local jobs as possible to support our community!
2. Turf Work - We will hire a contracted synthetic turf company to install the field.
The anticipated completion date for the field is in the fall of 2023.
