The 1992 middle school roof, floors and HVAC (heating/ventilation/air conditioning) system are beyond normal life expectancy. The HVAC system has required several expensive repairs and no longer provides adequate and consistent heat throughout the building. It is too noisy to be in operation during Performing Arts Center performances and presentations. The middle school floor tile is breaking, discoloring, and bubbling-up throughout the hallways. The roof has not yet failed but is at maximum life expectancy.
Restroom plumbing at the elementary school is antiquated and in constant need of repair; modern and reliable fixtures need to be installed. The Multipurpose Room is one of the heaviest used facilities in the district. The restrooms, stage, flooring, and kitchen are in need of repair and/or updating. Scheduling of physical education classes has to be interrupted for lunch service mid-day.
The 1979 high school gymnasium bleachers are failing to open and close, can no longer be efficiently repaired, and do not meet ADA compliance requirements.
The Mickey Clark Field complex was constructed in 1984. The track is beyond its life expectancy, has surface cracking and is inadequate to host track meets. Seating at the field cannot accommodate attendance during the football games and has only one entrance and exit. The existing press box poses safety concerns.
The plan to develop baseball, softball, and soccer fields on Engle Field was approved by Island County in 2006. Work must begin moving forward or the planning process will need to be reinitiated. To date, limited improvements have been made to the baseball field and soccer practice field.
