Agnews Campus Progress Report


The SCUSD Board is getting regular updates from staff about the timeline for opening schools at the site of the former Agnews Facility in North San Jose. Staff is recommending that there be three schools built (TK-5, Middle School, High School) as opposed to building two schools (TK-8, High School). The Bonds office needs guidance from the board about these configurations in order to begin the work of designing the campus. The projected opening of the new school campus is Fall 2019.

The district held a meeting at Mayne on Monday, March 28th, at Montague on Tuesday, Marcy 29th and will have another one at Don Callejon on Monday, April 18th. Larry Adams and Kathie Kanavel presented about the construction plan at this point and the educational plan. Several community members were misinformed that closing Mayne Elementary was a possibility and that seeking more bonds to cover the cost was on the table. Neither is true.
