Edison Language Academy

  • Edison Language Academy

    Project Overview

    Using Measure BB funds, all existing facilities at Edison Language Academy were replaced with an entirely new campus. These changes included 27 classrooms for kindergarten through fifth grade, two pre-school classrooms, a new library, and cafeteria.

    New administrative and support facilities were constructed, offering a welcoming and inviting environment for both students and visitors. Outdoor improvements include new community-accessible playfields and playgrounds, outdoor eating and learning areas, and new landscaping throughout the campus.

    The Edison Language Academy project reflects Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) criteria by improved day lighting, improved air quality and natural ventilation, reduced water use and storm water treatment.

    Construction began in August 2011 and was completed in November 2014.

    Architects and district staff are working to envision possible projects to improve the campus to help prepare for the ways children will learn and help prepare students for 21st century jobs.

    In June, an online community meeting was held, during which this campus assessment, which includes proposed changes to campus, was presented.

    Based on feedback from that meeting and meetings with educators, administrators and staff, architects are fine tuning the proposals, estimating costs and proposing the order in which projects would be done. Chosen projects would be funded by bonds from Measure SMS, passed by voters in 2018.

    Another meeting will be held in September. When it’s available, you’ll be able to find the meeting schedule at the campus assessment page. You’ll also be able to learn more about the campus assessment process itself.
