01 Nov Revision 4 of Capital Improvement Program reallocates funds to renovations and new CTAs

The Board of School Trustees approved a revision to the Capital Improvement Program to realign it with the infrastructure needs of CCSD schools. The revision calls for fewer classroom addition projects to reallocate funds to a Comprehensive Renovation Program. The renovation program will address the aging infrastructure at 290 schools that are 20 or more years old. The reallocation of money will be used to ensure the full-service life of the schools’ infrastructure while addressing some of the cosmetics.

The new plan also includes two new Career and Technical Academies (CTA) to address the demands of the student population. CCSD received 22,000 magnet applications for 15,201 available seats. 64 percent of those applications were for CTAs. Northeast CTA is expected to relieve capacity concerns at Legacy, Shadow Ridge and Arbor View high schools. South CTA would alleviate capacity issues at Desert Oasis, Liberty, Foothill, Coronado and Green Valley high schools.
