Document Description
LAUSD proposes to construct a new high school (grades 9-12) campus on the project site. The campus will consist of four separate "Small Learning Communities" (SLC). The proposed project would provide 2,160 two-semester seats for grades 9-12. At completion, the project would accommodate approximately 190,000 SF of building space and include 79 classrooms, 70 of which would be regular classrooms and nine of which would be special education classrooms. The high school would also include performing arts/music facilities; physical education/athletic facilities including a gymnasium; library/media center/multipurpose room; food services; a student store; a career center, and associated support facilities, such as workrooms, administration areas, restrooms, storage rooms, and health offices. The new high school would provide relief to Sylmar High School and San Fernando High School. The first Phase of the project would include 1,620 two-semester seats and approximately 160,000 SF of building space. This phase would include three SLCs as well as all the supporting facilities listed above for the full campus. It is anticipated that the proposed school will open in 2010. LAUSD proposes to add one additional SLC providing 540 seats to accommodate future growth in the project area. It is anticipated that the proposed fourth SLC will open in 2015 and will consist of approximately 32,000 SF and include 19 classrooms. The fourth SLC may also accommodate limited use for adult education. The 16.5-acre proposed project site is comprised of one parcel and is currently occupied by a paved parking lot.
