    Summer 2021 - Summer 2023

    • New School

    A new elementary school, currently with a working name of "ES29," will be completed by fall 2023 in the south Hillsboro area as the final major project of the 2017 Bond. The site is approximately eight acres, located at the northeast corner of SE Kinnaman Road and SE Reed Drive. The building will be approximately 73,500 sq. ft., with two stories and capacity for 600 students.

    The original plan was to open in fall 2022; however, recent enrollment projections indicate that Rosedale Elementary School can continue to serve as the home school for the anticipated student population in this area through the 2022-23 school year.

    Construction will take place in two phases. Phase 1 comprises site work that will began in summer 2021. This will include excavation, grading, installation of underground utilities, rock compaction, and other earthwork. Work is also expected to add curbs, ramps, sidewalks, retaining walls, and asphalt paving on the site as well as junction boxes, relocated streetlights, sidewalks, and driveways on the site frontages.

    Phase 2 is expected to begin in spring 2022 with construction of the school building and completion of remaining site work, culminating in the opening of the school in fall 2023.

    Around spring 2022, a community survey process is expected to develop the official name for ES29, followed by mascot naming and logo development. A boundary process, with community representation, will be initiated in late spring/early summer 2022 to evaluate surrounding HSD school attendance areas and carve out the ES29 attendance boundaries. Boundaries will take into account student demographics, transportation routes, etc.

    After completion, the school is expected to address the enrollment growth that will eventually result from development in south Hillsboro in the coming years. The building will be modeled on the design of the Brookwood Elementary School replacement and Atfalati Ridge Elementary School (orientations and site placements will differ).

    The district also owns additional property in this area and, subject to passage of a future bond measure, plans to add three other elementary schools, a middle school and a high school on this property to create a new feeder system to serve the South Hillsboro area.
