Per year from now, these modern Richmond school campuses are slated to generally be completed

About yearly from now, construction on two impressive Richmond school developments is slated to remain completed following many years of planning and ten million dollars in investments, based on the West Contra Costa Unified School District Reporter, a district newsletter publication.

Below are summaries and pictures of both developments expected to wrap in August of this year:

1. Samuel Gompers Continuation Twelfth grade and Leadership Public Schools-Richmond (LPS)

The two schools, Gompers and LPS, are hoped for to advance into a shared, “high-performance” campus in Richmond after effectiveness of construction.

The project creates two separate, seismically sound and modern high school graduation campuses at a 3.1-acre site bounded by Bissell and Chanslor avenues and 8th and 9th streets.

Gompers, that can have its entrance on Chanslor, is undoubtedly an alternative school and Leadership Public Schools, with an entrance on Bissell, is often a public charter school.

The Gompers campus is able to house nearly 250 students, an increase from 170, while the new LPS center will be able to serve up to 585 students.

Construction within the development began in October 2012.

2. Coronado Elementary School

Construction within the Coronado campus began in January and forced the school’s 480 students to move to temporary classrooms at Kennedy Secondary school.

WCCUSD says the temporary inconvenience might be worth the cost.

According into the district: “The latest campus will consist of 64,738 sq ft of classroom, administration, multipurpose, kindergarten, and support facilities. Modern technologies plus an number of upgrades will add to the students’ learning experiences when the rebuilt school opens in August 2015.”

Not precisely the students, but neighbors will manage to benefit in the new campus, that can such as a shared garden and community kitchen as well as a wellness center that should provide dental, medical, optical, and counseling services for college students.

Along with areas to experience basketball, soccer, kickball and 4 square, kids can have having access to an outdoor playground which will have a map in the U.S. and world, large math grids and multicultural game tables, WCCUSD said.
