Document Description
Mare Island Technology Academy, a charter school for middle school students, and MIT Academy, a charter school for high school students, are authorized by the Vallejo City Unified School District (VCUSD or District) and are operated by Griffin Technology Academies (GTA), a non-profit public benefit corporation. The project site is owned by the Vallejo City Unified School District, and GTA operates the charter schools ( collectively referred to as MITA) under a long-term lease. With approval of the District, the GT A applied and received funding for four Charter School Facility grants from the Office of Public School Construction through the State of California's Charter School Facilities Program. All of the portable classrooms that currently exist on the MIT A campus, except for three, have not been approved by the Division of the State Architect (DSA). The proposed project will replace all structures with new DSA-approved classrooms and support facilities. The proposed project would renovate the MITA's existing campus, demolish 61,745 square feet of existing buildings on-site and the portable buildings at the southern portion of the site, and re-grade the site. The proposed project involves the construction of 80,002 square feet of new buildings including two-story classroom buildings, a science building, administration building, multipurpose building, gymnasium, soccer field, and other outdoor play fields. Lighting of outdoor sports facilities is not proposed. The proposed project would construct a total of 45 classrooms. Site improvements will also include on-site parking, improved vehicle circulation, landscaping, walkways, and other amenities. No community use of the school facilities is anticipated. All new facilities will meet current state building standards. The following discretionary actions and approvals are required for project implementation: (1) Adoption of the Mitigated Negative Declaration and the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program by Vallejo City Unified School District; (2) Adoption of Title 5, California Code of Regulations findings by Vallejo City Unified School District; (3) project approval by Griffin Technology Academies; (4) plan approval by California Department of Education; (5) site approval and no further action by California Department of Toxic Substances Control; and (6) permits for road, drainage, utilities, signage improvements, and encroachment from City of Vallejo.
