Tumwater School District plans for future facility needs based on the best available information. As these plans cover many years, sometimes circumstances change, causing us to revisit previous decisions. That is what is happening right now, with the move of our sixth grades to our middle school sites. Originally, we had planned construction of new wings at our middle schools for 2017-18, with 6th grade students starting in the fall, 2018. With State funding for all day kindergarten programs arriving sooner than expected, four of our six elementary schools are now at capacity. This has led us to explore moving the timeline up one full year. We have thoroughly explored this option and have found that it allows for the time needed for planning and construction. The School Board has reviewed and approved this new timeline. As part of the planning process, ongoing communication with students, staff and the community will be a priority.
