Thanks to the support of the Central Kitsap community, Central Kitsap Middle School will be replaced. The new building will be built in the center of the campus CK Middle already shares with Central Kitsap High School. The new building is expected to open in late 2019.
The new school will:
- Provide an up‐to-date learning environment
- Improve car entrances, walkways, parking and athletic fields
The school would share a kitchen and mechanical systems with the new high school, but would be walled off from the high school. Each school has its own commons area on a separate floor.
Why It's Needed
The original portion of Central Kitsap Middle School was built in 1959. Most major systems, from plumbing to electrical, need to be replaced.
Weather conditions have worn, and in some cases cracked, the building's exterior. Major upgrades would be needed to reinforce the building in case of an earthquake. The roof leaks in several areas and window and door seals need to be replaced. Several floors, including the gym floor need to be replaced.
Congestion is a problem at the school. During pickup and dropoff times, buses idle in the parking lot, preventing parents from parking. The new school would provide a new bus loop separate from the parking area.
