We are pleased to announce that the district’s newest elementary school, most recently referred to as Elementary 18, was officially named at the July 18 school board meeting. Wilburton Elementary, named after the Bellevue community it resides in, is currently under construction and will open fall 2018.
The work of the Elementary 18 Attendance Area Committee was completed during the group’s sixth meeting Thursday night May 19. During the meeting, the committee established final ranked recommendations for the Superintendent and Board regarding attendance areas, feeder patterns, transition plans and grandfathering procedures.
E18 is a new $49 million facility approved by the Bellevue taxpayers during the last bond election (February 2014). The school will be located at the Northwest corner of NE 1st Street and 120th Ave NE, just east of the Bellevue Botanical Garden.Read More
