Document Description
The District is proposing to acquire land on and in the vicinity of McCandless Drive and Houret Court, in the City of Milpitas, Santa Clara County, to develop and operate a new K-6 elementary school. The proposed, approximately 10-acre school site would span several vacant and developed parcels. The project is intended to alleviate increases in the District's existing and projected student enrollment, and is planned to be operational in time for the 2018/2019 school year. The project would involve property acquisition, soil remediation activities, elementary school construction and operation, McCandless Drive improvements (e.g., lane extensions), on-and off-site utility improvements, and join-use of property for school-related and City park purposes.
