    About the Project

    The existing Viewlands Elementary will be demolished to make way for a new multi-story school building. The new school will be approximately 95,000 square feet and provide permanent classroom space for up to 650 students. The school design will include a secure entry and respectful of the surrounding neighborhood. Site improvements will include earthwork and new parking. The BEX V Capital levy will also provide technology equipment and services, such as computers, peripherals, printers, and other technology for teaching and learning.

    Viewlands Elementary will move to the John Marshall School interim site during construction.
