Site Selection And Development   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board 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. The Board will solicit community input whenever a school site is to be selected.

(cf. 7110 - Facilities Master Plan)

The Superintendent/Principal 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)
