Renton School District to hold local meeting about new middle school
March 25, 2013
NEW — 10:45 a.m. March 25, 2013
The Renton School District will present information about the anticipated new middle school at a community meeting in Newcastle on April 3.
The meeting is designed to be a dialogue between the community and the district’s design team, along with the architects for the project, NAC Architecture, to provide opportunities for input that will lead the process through the design and construction phases.
It will focus on reviewing the project schedule and existing site conditions and presenting the vision statement, guiding principles and education specifications established by the project steering committee.
Construction is set to begin in March 2015 on what will be the district’s fourth middle school, which was made possible thanks to voter support of an April 2012 bond measure. The $97 million bond measure will fund the school, improvements to the Lindbergh High School pool and other construction costs.
The middle school, which will be located on the site of the Renton Academy, is slated to open in fall 2016. It will accommodate the students that are currently in second through fourth grades.
The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Renton Academy, 6928 116th Ave S.E.
