Several business items about Sierra Vista, a soon-to-open K-8 school, several Measure A-related contracts, and a school report from Orchard Principal Ken Ratti are on the agenda when Vacaville Unified leaders meet tonight in Vacaville.
Trustees are expected to approve the Sierra Vista Reopening Committee’s recommendations that were presented at the governing board’s Dec. 10 meeting.
They include two classes for each grade K-6, and four classes per grade level 7-8.
When the Bel Air Drive campus opens in August, the initial upgrades to the school, currently the home of the district Independent Study program, are projected to cost $2 million — for parking lot expansion and bell and phone systems, among other things — but other major remodeling or construction projects, including a multipurpose room and science classrooms, are expected to cost $11 million.
