In February 2020 the Kittitas Community overwhelmingly passed a $13.2 million dollar School Bond. The School District hired Rock Project Management Services, L.L.C. (RPM) as owners representatives to perform PM/CM Services.
RPM’s job is to utilize their industry experience to help the School District complete all the projects on time and on budget. In April, 2020 the School District secured a contract with Integrus Architecture (IA) to work on the design of the 2020 Bond Program Projects. The bond money, along with Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OPSI) funding, is to be used to complete the following projects:
-Replace Primary Building with an addition to the Intermediate Building
-Construct a New Maintenance / Transportation facility
-Demolish the Old Kittitas High School & Primary Building
-Re-roof Jim Johnson Memorial Gymnasium
-Install Security & HVAC upgrades to the Secondary School
-Remodel the District Office
The Jim Johnson re-roof was completed in October 2020. The abatement and demolition of the Old High School was completed in March of 2021. Construction of the new addition started in June of 2021 and is set to be completed by end of July 2022. Once the new addition has been built the Old Primary Building will be abated, demolished and a larger parking lot will be created in it's place. The Bus Loop and corresponding cul-de-sac was completed November 4th 2021.
