Downing Elementary Construction Updates

ABOUT THE PROJECT         

Downing Elementary School serves approximately 350 preschool through fifth-grade students in Tacoma's North and West ends. The current building was constructed in 1949, with several additions in the 1950s. Downing students will stay in their existing building during construction of the new school. 
 

Expected opening: September 2022

This project is funded by the $535 million school construction bond voters passed in 2020.
