What is happening?
Bellevue School District (BSD) is proposing a consolidation of 3 of the 7 smaller elementary schools in the district due to budget cuts and enrollment declines. Melissa deVita, BSD’s Deputy Superintendent of Finance and Operations, shared this proposal and information to the BSD Board of Directors on January 12.
On March 16, 2023, by a vote of 3 - 2 the Bellevue School board has voted to consolidate Wilburton & Eastgate Elementary.
We love our school family, made up of students, parents/guardians and our teachers and staff. Losing Wilburton Elementary would be a tremendous loss to our community, and to the families it serves.
We will continue to work as a community to support our staff, teachers, kids and families for the remainder of the year -- and the transition into Enatai & Clyde Hill Elementary for the 2023 -2024 school year.
