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

New Ridge View Elementary School

Ridge View Elementary will be replaced (new-in-lieu) on the same site and expanded to 30 classrooms. Construction will be completed on December 2023 and open on January 3, 2024 to students.

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

Kennewick High School has added a two-story building that can accommodate 2,000 students, a new bus loop, staff parking lot and sports fields.
