This new $31 million K-12 school, located on the Colville Indian Reservation, was built under a unique partnership between the Grand Coulee Dam School District and the Colville Indian Tribe. It utilized an unprecedented funding arrangement by the State of Washington requiring close coordination with the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI).
This 101,221 square foot steel and CMU building was placed on the site of an old elementary school, and adjacent to the existing high school. Site costs included improvements for the remainder of the 8.6 acre site and a 1200’ long retaining wall of height up to 22’. Near the end of the project, a construction budget surplus was utilized to provide new siding and roofing for the existing high school gymnasium complex, unifying the entire campus.
