The Richland School District Tuesday night awarded the general contractor bid for the new elementary school in West Richland to Chervenell Construction, Kennewick. Chervenell’s bid of $17.51 million was the lowest of three bids submitted. Work will begin in late April.

  • The District’s 11th elementary school will be built near the intersection of Belmont Boulevard and Sunshine Avenue.
  • The school will open in August 2019***.
  • The school will be 65,000 square feet in size and house approximately 600 students.

District residents approved a $99 million bond issue for the new elementary school and nine other projects in February 2017. Details on the projects are available here.

“We thank community members for their commitment to providing up-to-date facilities for our children,” stated Superintendent Rick Schulte.
