Two identical measures for a second high school plus $2 million for technology at South Kitsap High failed by narrow margins this year.

The district made two failed attempts in the 1990s to pass a bond for a second high school. The last time South Kitsap passed a bond was in the late 1980s for three elementary schools.

Other vintage schools in South Kitsap are Olalla Elementary, the original part of which was built in 1954, and South Colby Elementary, whose original structure dates to 1956.

The bond would dedicate $41.5 million to "safety, security and health" improvements at all schools.
