Site Selection And Development   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees believes that a school site should serve the district's educational needs in accordance with the district's master plan and also show potential for contributing to other community needs.

(cf. 7110 - Facilities Master Plan)

The Superintendent or designee shall establish a site selection process which complies with law and ensures that the best possible sites are acquired and developed at the least expense.

(cf. 7140 - Architectural and Engineering Services)

(cf. 7210 - Facilities Financing)

Before acquiring property for a new school or an addition to an existing school site, the Board shall evaluate the property at a public hearing using state site selection standards. (Education Code 17211)
