With funds from a voter-approved bond measure, the district had planned to construct two new elementary schools:

Downtown elementary school

Elementary school at NE 25th Avenue and 88th Street

Update Dec. 20, 2019:

Vancouver Public Schools will hold public meetings at five elementary schools to give the community an opportunity to provide input on the construction of a new elementary school. The elementary school, planned to be built at NE 25th Avenue south of 88th Street, was among the list of schools to be built, replaced and upgraded with funding from the February 2017 bond measure.

VPS is recommending that the elementary school be removed from the list of current bond projects and deferred to a future bond measure. Flat enrollment and rising marketplace costs have caused district staff to re-examine the rationale for building the school at this time. Operational budget constraints also are an important consideration.
