Sunnyvale Middle School Master Plan
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Sunnyvale School District (SSD) proposes to reaffirm and implement the first phase of the Sunnyvale Middle School Master Plan (Master Plan). In addition to completing site-wide modernization and deferred maintenance to existing school facilities and utilities, the Master Plan includes constructing classroom and locker room buildings along with numerous other improvements such as reconfiguring existing buildings and student drop-off areas. The first phase of the Master Plan would replace 17 existing temporary classrooms on the campus with a new 21-classroom, two-story building. Although the first phase would result in a net increase of four classrooms on the campus, upon full implementation of the Master Plan there would be a net increase of one classroom on the campus compared to existing conditions.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1, Class 2, Class 4, Class 11, Class 14
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.
