    October Planning Update — Elementary Schools

    Planning continues for the Kimball Elementary, Northgate Elementary, and Viewlands Elementary replacement projects, and the West Seattle Elementary expansion and renovation project.

    Thank you, voters! The Building Excellence Capital Levy (BEX V) in 2019 included funding for these projects. The West Seattle project is also partially funded by a Distressed Schools Grant from the State of Washington.

    We’re planning a new Kimball Elementary School

    Construction starts Summer 2021
    New school opens Fall 2023

    A new school building

    The proposed project will build a new 3-story school for up to 650 students. The new school will meet district elementary school educational standards and provide learning spaces to support student academic success. A team made up of the principal, staff, teachers, parents, and community members advised the design team on the plan.

    The school is designed to fit with the neighborhood with open space for outdoor learning, play, and recreation.

    These drawings show what the school building might look like when complete.
