Santana High Holds Ribbon Cutting for New Student Plaza

The 33,000 square feet of open area was paid for by Prop U.

Submitted by the Grossmont Union High School District

On Tuesday, January 15, Grossmont Union High School District trustees, school and community officials participated in a ribbon cutting at Santana High School to mark the completion of the newly constructed Student Plaza.

The Plaza, which replaced 16 aged portable classrooms, is 33,000 square feet of open area consisting of concrete seat walls, shade structures, landscape, and various hardscape features. The plaza provides an appealing open air gathering place for students to meet during classroom breaks, ASB functions, and various extracurricular activities. The plaza connects science and technology teaching areas and also provides demonstration space for student work product.

The $827,000 project was funded by Proposition U and constructed by Western Rim Contractors. Recycled materials were incorporated into the concrete and landscaping. The program manager is Gafcon, the Construction Manager is Erickson Hall and HED is the Architect.

We are making incredible strides toward delivering taxpayer-supported and funded facilities all across this District. Thank you for making the modernization of our campuses districtwide possible!

So....we spent almost a million dollars of taxpayer money to build an outdoor area for kids to hang out between classes......and we needed a tax increase because there's not enough money for education????
