Construction of the new Evergreen Transition Program building began in January 2023. This project is located near Highland Middle School and is designed as a two-story building to provide experiential learning opportunities for young adults with disabilities ages 18-21, to foster independence in the areas of employment, education/training and life skills. The Evergreen Transition Program is currently located on the Interlake High School campus.
The project is bond-funded and is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2024. The Evergreen Transition Program’s new home is designed to be the district’s second Net-Zero building.
The building will include, among other support spaces:
- 10 classrooms
- Skill and project areas
- A life-skills coaching apartment
- A central gathering space
The project will include:
- Outdoor patios for art projects and student recreational activities
- A round-about provides a turnaround area for school buses and parent/guardian drop-off
