Document Description
The Ceres Unified School District is proposing to construct a new elementary school. The proposed elementary school would be designed to accommodate about 630 students, and would include classrooms, administrative offices, and facilites typically associated with elementary school facilities, including playfields. There would be no lighted field. Joint use facilities with the City of Ceres are not anticipated at this time. Onsite parking adequate to accommodate anticipated parking demand would also be provided. Additionally, appropriate pick up/drop off areas will also be implemented. Access to the site would be from Whitmore Avenue, which borders the site to the north. The proposed school must meet the requirements of the District, the Office of Public School Construction (OPSC) and the California Department of Education. In general, the site meets the minimum criteria, being at least 10 acres and roughly rectangular in shape, with good access to major roads. Existing residences and other facilities onsite would be demolished to accomodate school construction. Current site residents would be provided relocation assistance in accomodance with State requirements.
