Westside School Campaign
Westside School has served as a community anchor for Jefferson County for decades. For many years it served as a high school, middle school, and an elementary school. Still owned by the Jefferson County School District, the facility now hosts a variety of organizations. However, it is badly in need of restoration and renovation.
The Bean Foundation has an option to buy the Westside School and proposes to create a community-centered campus that will expand services beyond education to include a historical museum, arts and performance spaces, a commercial kitchen, maker space, and, a entrepreneural/small business/technology hub.
The Capital Campaign was expected to launch in 2020; however, like many things it has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Stay tuned for future updates.
