The Westview Elementary School replacement is just one of the many projects that Spokanevoters approved by passing the 2009 school bond. The $332 million district-wide plan includes renovations or modernizations of four elementary schools; completely new ventilation, roofing and flooring upgrades at nine elementaries; safety, security and technology updates for the entire district; and building, field or playground improvements for all schools. For information regarding these or any other construction projects, please contact our Capital Projects office at 509.354.5775.
Location: The original Westview Elementary School opened in 1955 in northwest Spokane at 6104 North Moore Street, a block south of Francis Avenue. The Westview neighborhood is a close-knit community with the school being a hub of many activities in the area.
The new Westview is located just south of the original site on the same seven-acre property. The current plan calls for the original school to be utilized by Finch Elementary students while their school is being modernized during the 2013-2014 school year. It will then be demolished and the area landscaped to an original park and playground setting.
