Document Description
The Santa Paula Unified School District (SPUSD) is proposing to modernize Isbell Middle School, located at 221 S. 4th St, Santa Paula, CA 93060. The main building on the Isbell Middle School campus is a two-story building built in 1926 listed on the Ventura County list of Historic Landmarks (#143) and Santa Paula list of Historical Landmarks (#14) in 1992. The Manual Arts building was added to the campus in 1929 and in 1954 the Multipurpose (Cafetorium) building was constructed. After considering options for facilities on the Isbell Middle School campus to accommodate the Middle School educational program, including renovation of the existing facilities, SPUSD is proposing to develop new facilities on the campus consisting of three or four single story buildings, with outward facing doors and exterior hallways, arranged around a Student Courtyard area designed to promote student safety and provide a central location for student activities. Development of the new facilities would require demolition of the main school building, Manual Arts building and other existing structures on the campus.
