In late September, the Hazeldale community celebrated the official groundbreaking for the new Hazeldale Elementary School. Hazeldale staff and students are located temporarily in the new middle school on NW 118th this year, while their school is demolished and rebuilt.
Hazeldale Elementary School is the second of four schools to be replaced as part of the District's $680 million construction bond approved by voters in May 2014. The current structure, built in 1942, will be torn down and replaced with a modern, 83,000 sq.ft., two-story building that will hold 750 students and will open in the fall of 2018.
The District is working closely with DLR Group Architects on the design of the facility, as well as with the City of Beaverton, on a site plan that meets the city's development requirements. The same design will be used as a prototype for William Walker Elementary, Vose Elementary and Sato Elementary School, saving money and time.
