The exterior of Grant Elementary School

The Ephrata School District school board and administration announced today a decision to place the remodel of Grant Elementary School on-hold due to skyrocketing costs of construction. The District intends to hold a public hearing in October to seek input on their plan to defease remaining local bond proceeds. A bond defeasance is a process that sets aside and invests the remaining bond dollars in escrow to ensure that the principal and interest payments on the bonds are guaranteed and can be made when the bonds come due. If approved, this action will lead to the district reducing future tax amounts.
