10 More Bethel Myths

Bethel Schools
Dec 12, 2018 · 5 min read

The School Board is going to take the bond money and use it to finance a secret swimming pool!

I heard that more than 83% of Bethel parents did not vote in the February 2018 election, and only 35% of parents voted in the November election.

Bethel already receives money from new construction impact fees. Use those to build new schools!

I just rent my house, so I can’t vote in the election.

You mismanage the money the state sends you!

78.87% went directly into the schools to support kids

5.84% went into custodial, maintenance and grounds

5.58% went into transportation

5.29% went into central office administration

3.01% went into Child Nutrition Services

1.41% went into paying our utility bills

Going to year-round school was a scare tactic, it will never happen.

Bethel so dumb. Why don’t you all build schools big enough to accommodate future growth?

Why don’t you use the Pierce County Skills Center to house students?

Why does it cost so much to build schools?

Bethel has enough money, stop asking for more! Take your marijuana, lottery and McCleary money and use it to build new schools.
