Our architects continue to hold virtual meetings in May and June with building design committees for Evergreen and Tyee high schools and Pacific Middle School.
The 2016 bond funds the design of a new Tyee High School. Architects were selected and the design work is beginning in 2019. We will involve the Tyee community in planning and design of their new school in 2019-2020. We shared information about the formation of a building design committee and how to express interest in being a member in October 2019. The committee will begin meeting with the architects in November 2019. Stay tuned for community information meetings in 2020.
Construction of a new Tyee High School will require funding from a proposed bond in the future. Completing the design in this bond will speed up the construction process by approximately two years and save an estimated $9 million in escalating construction costs for the three design-only projects in this bond (Evergreen High School, Tyee High School and Pacific Middle School).
Three sets of architects held virtual meetings with school building design committees in April due to the novel coronavirus response.
