NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The District proposes to develop a 350-seat PAC and middle school enclave at the existing high school campus in two phases. The actual timing of the project would depend on available funding sources. For the purposes of this Initial Study, the middle school enclave is assumed to be developed in Phase 1 and the PAC in Phase 2. The proposed middle school enclave would serve the existing students in grades 7 and 8 and no new school programs would be introduced as part of the project. However, because of modernization and classroom reorganization, the proposed project would result in a net increase of 10 classrooms. Furthermore, as permitted under Government Code Section 53094, the Board of Education plans to exempt the site from current zoning regulations.
