Document Description
The proposed project involves the expansion of the existing Arroyo Vista Elementary School from grades K-6 to grades K-8. As a part of this project, student enrollment will be capped at 1,050 students in grades K-8. The school site is approximately 8.5 acres. A 3-acre portion of the privately owned Arroyo Vista Park is available to the school in accordance with an existing joint use agreement. The proposed project will include the establishment of a middle school "campus" on the northern side of the school site. This campus area will include 2 two-story modular units with 20 classrooms, a new performing arts building and a new library building. A 4th-5th grade area will be established on the western side of the school site, adjacent to Las Mesitas. This area will contain 1 two-story modular unit with 11 classrooms. An upgraded electrical transformer will be added to the existing electrical equipment. The school's existing parking lot will be redesigned to include an expanded student drop-off area if approved by the State.
