Prop. S Update: Breaking Ground on Madison High’s Broadcast Journalism Facility

The Board of Education recently awarded the construction contract for a 3,250 square-foot, high-definition broadcast journalism building at Madison High School. Construction will begin next month and is expected to be complete by spring 2011.

The facility was designed by experts in the field and will support a course of study that prepares students for careers in the arts, media and entertainment industry. The broadcast area consists of a 900 square-foot, two-set studio next to an adjacent 335 square-foot, eight-workstation control room. Student learning and project preparation will take place in a 1,150 square-foot audiovisual classroom with three editing rooms.

The College, Career and Technical Education (CCTE) project is funded by Proposition S and a California Proposition 1D grant. For more information, please visit the CCTE website at or the Prop S website at\PropS.
