Prop. S Update: Sustainable Technologies Project Starts at Scripps Ranch High

Construction is starting this month at Scripps Ranch High School on its new Sustainable Technologies Program Building. Funded by a California Proposition 1D Grant and Proposition S, the building will house an innovative College, Career & Technical Education (CCTE) program being developed at the school that focuses on renewable technologies.

The new 10,000-square-foot building will incorporate sustainable design and green building strategies, such as operable windows for natural ventilation and lighting. Additional building features will include a power and energy lab as well as a design and engineering lab, both with associated classrooms, storage and tool rooms. Project completion is anticipated for fall 2012.
