In its effort to gain voter support for two election measures on the February 2014 ballot, officials from the Edmonds School District released a list of school projects to be completed if one of the two measures passes.

The district will be seeking voter approval for both a Replacement School Programs and Operation Levy and a Capital Construction Bond on Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014. If passed, the replacement levy collection would average $62.5 million per year for four years, 2015 through 2018. The bond measure would pay for capital projects totaling $275 million throughout the district.

This is the list of proposed projects to be completed in Mountlake Terrace and Brier schools if the capital construction bond receives voter approval:

Brier Elementary   
Replace worn classroom carpet throughout the school
Upgrade the security system with new intrusion alarms and electronic main entrance access
