Officials with the Bainbridge Island School District are hosting an open house Saturday to give details on the 100 Building at Bainbridge High School.

Built in 1970, the 100 Building currently houses the school’s fine arts, special education program, and career and technical classes.

“We look forward to giving Bainbridge residents a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how the 100 Building is used by students and staff,” said Tamela Van Winkle, executive director of facilities and operations.

“We are also excited to share architectural renderings of the proposed new building and auditorium — the designs speak for themselves,” she added. “The new spaces will provide optimal learning environments for our students.”

The reconstruction of the 100 Building is expected to be financed in part by the approval of the capital projects levy on the Feb. 12 ballot.

The open house is from 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Feb. 2. Visitors can come see the current 100 Building at BHS, view plans for the new building and auditorium, and ask questions.

In the February 2019 election, Bainbridge voters will have the opportunity to vote on Proposition 1, a measure put forth by the Bainbridge Island School District.

If approved, the $15 million levy would provide funding to:

• Complete the construction project at Bainbridge High School (which includes replacing the current 100 Building and transforming the commons into an auditorium);

• Perform district-wide maintenance and repairs for six years; and

• Perform renovations such as school security upgrades.
