It's Earthquake Preparedness webpage states, "Because of our community's generous support of the 2014 and 2020 Bonds, the district has built several new schools and seismically upgraded others." These bonds provided the District a unique opportunity to not only address daily operational needs, but also respond to the findings of The Oregon Resilience Plan by constructing disaster resilient schools that are also capable of supporting their surrounding communities as emergency shelters.
During an emergency, the following schools can serve as evacuation centers in partnership and under the direction of local Red Cross or other government agencies: Aloha High School, Aloha-Huber Park K-8, Arts & Communication Magnet Academy (ACMA), Five Oaks Middle School, Mountainside High School, Tumwater Middle School, plus Beaver Acres, Bethany, Bonny Slope, Cooper Mountain, Hazeldale, Sato, Vose and William Walker Elementary Schools.
The following middle schools will be seismically upgraded as part of the 2020 Bond over the next several years and will be able to serve as evacuation centers in the future: Cedar Park, Five Oaks, Highland Park, Meadow Park, Mountain View and Whitford.
