Document Description
The project applicant, Bright Star Schools, is seeking development approval from the Los Angeles Unified School District for the construction and operation of a charter school (Rise Kohyang High School). The new charter high school would have a capacity of 600 students in grades 9-12 and 75 full and part-time teachers and staff. The Project consists of a 76,390-square-foot two-story building with staff space (reception/clerical/administration/teacher offices, meeting rooms), restrooms, support space (custodial, storage, electrical/telecommunications rooms), 24 classrooms, multipurpose room and servery, gymnasium, and semi-subterranean parking garage. The 62-space parking garage would have a designated drop-off/pick-up area and queuing lane. The drop-off/pick-up zone would permit student unloading and loading directly from the passenger side without obstructing the circulation lane.
