Irving Middle School Major Modernization Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
“Junior High School – Public” with a “Public Facilities” land use designation; zoned “Public Facilities” (PF)
Document Description
The proposed Project involves building replacement and reconfiguration on the Irving MS Campus as part of LAUSD’s update to the School Upgrade Program (SUP). The scope consists of the modernization of the Campus to facilitate a safe and secure campus that is better aligned with the current instructional program and meets current Division of the State Architect (DSA) requirements and educational specifications. The proposed Project includes the demolition of the three permanent classroom buildings located directly over an identified earthquake fault (Homemaking Building, Classroom Building, and Administration Building) and the removal of six portable bungalow buildings in the northwest corner of the site. These buildings would be replaced by the construction of one, approximately 55,000-square-foot, two-story building that would house 19 classrooms and support spaces, administration offices, library, and other building service spaces. Additionally, the proposed Project would include a new Maintenance and Operation (M&O) building and two modular classrooms to be used by the City of Angeles Community School. The proposed Project also includes essential upgrades including seismic retrofit of the existing Auditorium Building outside of the earthquake fault, the removal of barriers as well as other accessibility upgrades, and various landscape and hardscape improvements. While the Project would reduce the total number of standard classrooms on the campus from 65 to 46 to accommodate the long-term needs of the school and community, it would provide additional outdoor learning and gathering spaces for its students.
