On September 18, 2019 Moody’s Investors Service upgraded Pullman School District’s bond rating to Aa3, an improvement from A1. Moody’s rating symbols indicate degrees of creditworthiness. “This rating upgrade shows that Pullman School District is a good steward of the public’s money,” said Bob Maxwell, Superintendent. “For our residents, this rating means that they will ultimately pay less in property taxes the next time the we issue bonds to pay for school construction.”
Pullman School District will request a $15 million, 20-year bond in February 2020 for the renovation and expansion of Lincoln Middle School and upgraded HVAC systems at three elementary schools.
