East Palo Alto, CA
With the goal of transitioning its existing eight K-8 school campuses into four neighborhood K-5 schools with onsite preschools, one comprehensive middle school, and maintaining a popular dual immersion K-5 school and Child Development Center, the Ravenswood City School District required a clear Facilities Master Plan (FMP) to guide facilities decision-making.
To develop the FMP for each location, numerous meetings were held to address creating more robust art, music, science and math programs and a dedicated space for support services, such as Reading Recovery. Facility assessments were conducted, focusing on infrastructure, utility upgrades and the existing facilities’ abilities to meet the needs of the District’s current and future goals. The needs identified in the assessments, combined with the input received from each meeting, were utilized to create a comprehensive FMP for each school.
All students have the ability to achieve academic success. RCSD will work collaboratively to create a quality instructional program which empowers students to make choices, achieve their personal best, be college bound, and productive responsible participants in a 21st century global society.Ravenswood City School District (RCSD)
