Project Goals

The overarching goal of this project is to address district growth and reduce portables, improve building conditions, and improve the health and safety of the learning environment. Many decisions about the direction of the Kenmore Elementary modernization project will be made in 2023 with input from the community. We will evaluate the building needs in order to prioritize the work that can be included in this expansion project. Northshore previously established the following priorities:

  • Reducing the number of portables and building additional permanent classrooms.

  • Improve building conditions by building a new central plant, using sustainable solutions.

  • Modernize classrooms.

  • Replace the gym and playfields, and install a fully accessible and inclusive playground.

  • Replace restrooms and add gender-inclusive restrooms to provide greater supervision and increase student safety.

  • Improve bus circulation and provide interior circulation.

  • Reorganize building entry and administration area.
