Site Selection and Development   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board believes that site selection and development starts from the premise that the school is an integral part of the total community. The Board shall solicit community input whenever a school site is to be selected.

Besides serving our district's educational needs, an adequate site should show potential for contributing to other community needs and functions.

Careful consideration shall be given to establishing criteria and procedures which ensure that the best possible sites are acquired and developed at the least expense.

(cf. 7120 - Participation in Planning)

Before title to any property is acquired, the Superintendent or designee shall secure the input of all agencies whose approval is required by law.

The Superintendent or designee shall determine whether any proposed development project is subject to the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act and shall ensure compliance with this Act whenever required.
