Document Description
The Newhall School District ("District") proposes to undertake the construction of six permanent classrooms, two office/administration buildings, restrooms and a multi-purpose room on the existing campus of the Old Orchard Elementary School ("Project"). The Project contemplates construction of classroom facilities organized in single story buildings on the existing campus, with the two office/ administration buildings being constructed on the southwest side of campus, the six classrooms being constructed on the southeast side of campus. The six additional classrooms will accommodate approximately 150 students. The new multi-purpose room will be constructed on the northeast corner of the existing campus and will provide the school with improved facilities for existing school activities, including but not limited to rainy day lunches and all-school assemblies. The multi-purpose room will also be available for community use pursuant to the District's existing facility use permit process. The new multi-purpose room is approximately 9,000 sq.ft. in size. Lighting for the Project will include low level security lighting for the new buildings and associated pedestrian areas. The Project will serve the needs of the District and the community it serves. The purpose of the Project is to provide educational facilities for elementary school students within the District. Education programs will be offered during the day, but occasional evening programs are anticipated consistent with the existing uses of the Old Orchard Elementary School.
