2024 School Construction Bond

The Facility Advisory Committee (FAC), made up of parents, community members, instructional and classified staff presented four objectives and three strategies:

Promote Educational Equity
Improve Student Learning
Enhance Community Value
Build for the Future
Instruction Drives Construction

Focus all designs on creating spaces that optimize instruction.

Site Safety

Continue to add to safety improvements at our schools and buildings. 

Move 6th grade to middle school

Middle school would move to a
6th, 7th, and 8th grade model
across the district. This aligns with
educational standards, expands
academic options, and creates
stronger student connections over
the three years.

Considerations for combining grades 6, 7, and 8 for middle school:

  • Learning standards shift between 5th and 6th grade
  • Learning standards and curriculum are designed for K-5, 6-8, and 9-12
  • 6th graders have more access to activities
  • Wider grade spans are more beneficial for course offerings
  • Access to lab science in 6th grade
  • Greater sense of belonging for students in a three year middle school
students juggle

When would 6th graders move?

  • The goal is to complete all middle school construction, including a 5th middle school, for the start of the 2028-29 school year
  • This current school years 1st graders would be the first group of students to attend middle school as 6th graders

Oak Heights Elementary

Oak Heights design

The design and plan for Oak Heights Elementary by Integrus Architecture has already been completed and paid for by the School Construction Assistance Program (SCAP),  a grant funded by OSPI. 
A new Oak Heights is scheduled to be completed with the current 2021 Capital Levy, but if the 2024 School Construction Bond is approved the school would be able to be completed on an accelerated schedule and lower construction costs.
