Capital Projects

Building Great Schools and Community

At KSD, we want to build safe schools and engaging learning environments where students and educators can be their best. Guided by the Kennewick School District's Capital Facilities Plan 2018-2028, the Capital Projects Department works to meet the needs of our community by sustaining, planning and improving buildings and facilities in our district. 

Current Projects

Tri-Tech Skills Center Logo

Modernization of the original 66,000 square foot area of the Tri-Tech facility built in 1981. The modernization would include energy and life safety improvements along with a reorganization of the 41-year-old spaces to satisfy current programs.

Drawing of Elementary School 18

The timeframe and location for Elementary School 18 is dependent on enrollment growth. Current enrollment and projected enrollment growth does not support the need for an additional elementary school. The future location of a new elementary school will be determined by future development and will likely be built on a site the district already owns.

Completed Projects

New Ridge View Elementary School

Ridge View Elementary was replaced on the same site with a 30-classroom building. Construction was completed December 2023 and open to students on January 3, 2024.

Kennewick High School exterior

Kennewick High School was replaced with a two-story building on the same site to accommodate 2,000 students. The project includes new parking lots, sports fields and a bus loop.
