In 2014, voters approved two levy measures and a bond measure. One levy was for educational programs and operating funds and one was for technology and capital projects. These levies replaced current levies that expired in 2014 and 2015, respectively. The bond measure funded the rebuilding of several schools plus the building of one new school.
Enatai Elementary School
Odle Middle School
The Odle Middle School replacement project consists of the complete demolition of the current school and replacement with a new 2 story school of ~143,000 SF. The current planning includes a hybrid geothermal heating and cooling system with high-efficient condensing gas boilers. 200kW of Photovoltaic will adorn the roof and canopy structures to provide an offset to the electrical consumption. Solar thermal panels will provide domestic hot water production and replenish the geothermal well-field heating capacity.
Sammamish High School
Phase 1 completed July 2015
Sammamish High School opened in 1959 and has undergone a number of additions and renovations over the life of the current building including the most recent addition of the 450 seat Performing Arts Center in 2005.
