NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
In order to modernize Central High School and provide improved educational programs in science, technology, engineering and math ("STEM") facilities for high school students at the District's existing site, the District will remove and replace seventeen general purpose portable and/or temporary classrooms on the site and construct a new STEM building consisting of 15 general purpose classrooms and the balance of the remainder of the building consisting of specialized STEM lab facilities for wet/dry, physics, robotics, and computer labs. The STEM building will also house administrative, restrooms, and office space. The footprint of the building will be completely within the existing campus boundaries, and the total sq. footage of the footprint of the new building will not be significantly more than the footprint of the temporary classrooms being removed and replaced. The project is not intended to expand existing student capacity as it results in a net decrease of general purpose classroom space (two less general purpose classrooms), but is instead intended to provide specialized learning laboratories and facilities to enhance the STEM educational programs being offered for the benefit of the existing student population. The building will be designed and constructed consistent with the requirements of the Division of the State Architect ("DS") for such STEM buildings and will be subject to review and approval of DSA before the District may commence construction.
