The excellence of our school district relies not only on the teaching and learning efforts of our students and teachers, but on the infrastructure in place for all CCUSD stakeholders to ignite unlimited possibilities for futures in college and career.
CULVER PARK HIGH SCHOOL / iAcademy / CULVER PARK ADULT SCHOOL: A classroom conversion is taking place to free up space between these campuses and better meet the needs of students in Adult Transition.
EL MARINO LANGUAGE SCHOOL: This is an exciting time for students as they will come back to a freshly painted exterior of the campus, as well as some final playground improvements. Most importantly, the installation of Air Conditioning throughout the campus will be taking place to further enhance the clean air effectiveness of the recently installed air filtration units. Not to be forgotten, a brand new Digital Marquee is coming to help keep students and families up-to-date on all school goings-on.
EL RINCON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: Phase 1 of the school's Air Conditioning project for the two-story classroom building will be underway, and a brand new Makerspace Classroom will be added to campus to aid in innovative learning experiences for all Rockets. In addition, we will be improving drainage issues across the school site and continue playground improvements in preparation of Fall '17.
FARRAGUT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: We will be building a new Makerspace Classroom to be shared between OCD and Farragut students that will aid in project-based learning experiences, and some painting improvements will be made, along with final playground enhancements as well. Not to be forgotten, a brand new Digital Marquee is coming to further keep students and families in the loop on all school-related business.
LA BALLONA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: Air Conditioning will be complete at La Ballona when we install new units in the final two-story building on campus. In addition, a new Digital Marquee is coming your way to light up school information for all Lions.
LINWOOD E. HOWE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: Air Conditioning will be complete at Lin Howe when we install new units in the final areas on campus. In addition, a Phase Change Materials pilot meant to insulate classrooms and keep them cooler will also get underway. A brand new Digital Marquee is coming to light up school information for all Vikings, and a portion of the dirt running track will be replaced by more student-friendly asphalt.
Wow! That's a ton of improvements coming our way, and we ask that families be patient with timelines as unforeseen variables sometimes impact project completion dates. By design, we have planned the scope of this Summer's construction efforts to be ambitious, as the sooner students and teachers have access to these enhancements at their schools, the more they can leverage them as a part of their day-to-day teaching and learning routines. Regardless of whether every single project on this list will be completed precisely by mid-August, they will absolutely be a part of every student's school experience next year, and in the years ahead.
Thank you, again, for making these improvements possible by way of your Bond support. When communities commit to excellence and support their local schools, incredible things can happen for children that change lives forever and alter the trajectory of one's future.
