ANTIOCH -- As a thank you for the those who help support the Measure B school bond last November, Antioch High Principal Louie Rocha has planned a program to share the details of the upcoming renovations to the 58-year-old school.
The community is invited to the campus from 9 a.m. to noon March 22. Held in Beede Auditorium, the program will include an hour-long presentation from HKIT Architects of the planned changes taking place over the next four years. In addition, visitors are encouraged to visit the school's innovative academies, including engineering, environmental, media and technology, leadership and public service. Teachers and students will be hand to answer questions and share completed projects.
More than a year ago, voters in the AHS part of the city approved paying an additional $50 in property tax each year for the modernization. More than 61 percent of voters supported Measure B, a $56.5 million school bond measure. Since that time, Oakland-based designing firm has met with district and campus stakeholders taking suggestions and working on plans that suit the community.
Opening speakers for the March 22 event will be Rocha and Superintendent Don Gill. For more information, call 925-779-7550.
