With the recent demolition of 65-year-old Dick Scobee Elementary School, the Auburn School District officially launched a year-long construction project that will culminate with the opening of its namesake on the same ground at 1031 14th St. NE in the fall of 2020.

The new Dick Scobee will be the product of a $456 million capital facilities bond – or the “big ask” as school officials have coined it – that voters approved in 2017. The measure will fund the rebuilding of six schools and the construction of two new ones.
