Before we can build the New Bethel High School near 224th and 70th, there is an old house on the district-owned property that needs to come down.

Instead of knocking it down, the district invited Graham Fire & Rescue to use the house for training, which they have been doing since January.

In February, students from the Pierce County Skills Center’s Fire Science class joined the firefighters for training in the house.

At the end of this month, the training will come to an end when Graham Fire will burn the house to the ground on February 27. This will help pave the way for the new Bethel High School to be constructed. That school is set to open in the fall of 2023.

New BHS Value Engineering Report

The Value Engineering Report for the New Bethel High School was recently completed by Roen Associates. The nearly 300-page document reviewed the architect’s design and made recommendations for cost avoidance, cost verification and added value proposals. This report is required in order to get the new BHS project on the list for state matching funds.
