Document Description
PSUSD is proposing to install field lighting at the existing high schools in response to recent changes in state law. The PSUSD High School Field Lighting Project will provide additional exterior lighting and safely allow the use of outdoor instructional and activity areas before and after school hours. Additional exterior lighting would maximize spaces on campus for outdoor instruction and activities at the district's high school campuses. The proposed Project consists of the addition of new field lighting for three District high schools: Palm Springs High School, Desert Hot Springs High School, and Cathedral City High School. The proposed Project is intended to expand the timing and use of the existing school facilities for several high school sports teams including baseball, softball, soccer, and tennis. By allowing evening use, the high school would provide enhanced opportunities for students to participate in school sponsored sports while accommodating the state-mandated late-start law.
