In November 2017, North Marion School District passed a bond for $42 million dollars. The school district has also received additional funds from bond proceeds, OSCIM and state seismic grants equaling another $11 million. Wenaha Group came on board in February 2018 and is working on initial designs and budget. The bond is for improvements at all four of the district's schools, consisting of safety vestibules and upgraded security cameras and intercom systems, a new CTE and classroom wing at the high school, roof replacements at primary, intermediate and middle schools, high school track replacement, mechanical upgrades at middle school, and new parking lots. Seismic grants include work in both high school and middle school gyms and lockers rooms.
