Slater Elementary construction

On June 16, 2016, the Board authorized initiation of the design process for Slater Elementary School, located at 220 N. Whisman. The Board voted in 2015 to open it as a neighborhood school, tentatively in fall of 2019.

District staff has begun site planning for the construction of the new Slater Elementary that will house kindergarten through fifth grade beginning in the 2019-2020 school year. The financing for this new campus is supported by revenue the District earns from property that it leases.

Who will attend?
Capacity and grade levels: 450 students in kinder-fifth grades. Student attendance boundaries will be determined as part of district-wide boundary revisions. Click here for more information.
