Grossmont Union High School District proposes to modernize existing facilities and construct a new 25-lane joint-use aquatic facility at Steele Canyon High School. The proposed project would be funded by Proposition H and U and the Career Technical Education (CTE) grant. However, CTE funds would be used only for modernization and not for new construction. The proposed project would occur as follows:
Phase 1: Perform American Disabilities Act upgrades on existing stadium, upgrade existing track and athletic field, and add HVAC and telecommunications.
Phase 2: Construct new joint-use aquatics facility (25 lanes).
Phase 3: Complete PE facilities, including irrigation system, complete casework at computer labs, reconfigure adult education classroom to career tech classroom, relocate adult education center to existing portable classroom building, and provide new stadium bleachers, pressbox, and elevator at the stadium.
These categorical exemptions apply to minor additions to existing schools within existing school grounds where the addition does not increase original student capacity by more than 25 percent or ten classrooms, whichever is less.
