Reasons for Exemption
The proposed Sunnyvale Middle School Master Plan would not introduce a new use onto the campus or result in substantial enrollment increase. Although full implementation of the Master Plan would result in a net increase of one classroom on the campus, the first phase of development would result in a net increase of four classrooms. Conservatively assuming a net increase of four classrooms and using the school's current average of 33.3 students per classroom, the project is estimated to increase student capacity by approximately 11 percent, from approximately 1,200
students to approximately 1,333 students. Therefore, planned development under the Master Plan would be exempt under Class 14, Minor Additions to Schools. Per section 15300.2 of the CEQA Guidelines, it has been dete1mined the project is not located on a hazardous waste site and the project would not affect environmental resources of hazardous or critical concern, result in a significant impact due to unusual circumstances, damage scenic resources, affect an historical resource, or result in a cumulative impact. For these reasons, the project is exempt from the provisions of CEQA.
