2019 Bond Projects

The 2019 Construction Bond raised nearly $250 million. The measure includes building a new elementary school in the Highlands/Sunset neighborhood, constructing additional science classrooms at the high schools, updates to schools and classrooms throughout the district, repairs and updates to the community swimming pool at Hazen High School, field improvements, and safety and security upgrades. A complete 2019 Bond project list by school is located at the bottom of this page.  

Projects for the 2019 Bond were chosen through a study that included input from principals, school staff, district Capital Planning and Facilities staff, and an architectural and engineering review of all sites. The district convened a committee of parents, community members, architects, and others to collect input on the proposed projects. The project list was then presented to school board members for consideration and approval.

Detailed information is outlined for three of the 2019 Bond projects below. 


Capital Projects Updates - 2019 Bond

Renton Memorial Stadium Field and track improvements

Improvements to the Renton Memorial Stadium will begin in June 2020. The artificial turf will be replaced with an upgraded product, with an eco-friendly infill material. The “e-layer” beneath the turf will be tested for safety and permeability, and repaired as needed to meet current code and safety requirements. The track surface will be replaced, including any necessary subgrade repairs. Field event areas will also be resurfaced, and takeoff boards, pole vault box, and soccer goal anchors will be replaced. Football goal posts will be refinished, and electrical upgrades will allow improved power and communications capabilities on the field.

New Elementary School

The Renton School District is in the process of designing a new elementary school (Elementary #16) for approximately 600 students in the Renton Highlands area. Population growth in the area has led the district to need additional classroom capacity for elementary school students. The district has purchased approximately 11 acres of property, consisting of 11 parcels of single-family residential property along the east side of Duvall Ave NE, surrounded by 10th Street NE and 12th Street NE. These parcels are being combined into one site to accommodate the new elementary school construction. Project managers are working to finalize the project schedule, while land use planning and wetland mitigation work is being done. Demolition of the existing structures will start mid April 2020.  

  • Budget: $60,000,000
  • Funded by: 2019 Bond
  • Project type: New School
  • Estimated completion: Fall 2022
  • Project Manager: Matt Feldmeyer
  • Architect: Hutteball + Oremus Architecture
  • Contractor: TBD
