New STEAM School Campus Planned in French Valley Area - Status Update
The 2020/21 school year has brought many challenges and shifts in identified needs and priorities. The significant challenges have been shortages and delays in construction supplies and materials affecting on-time project completion to open the new school fully. In addition, this year, due to the COVID-19 experiences, the TVUSD administration has been re-evaluating the needs and priorities of our entire PreK-12 learning community. As a result, the school site identified as the STEAM school currently under construction in the French Valley area will not open as initially planned for the 2021/22 school year.
As portions of the site are projected to be completed, TVUSD is potentially planning to utilize some of the finished spaces on the site to serve as one of the two planned Home INstead Innovation Academy homeschool and virtual program learning centers for the 2021/22 school year. This approach will allow us to utilize portions of the site to meet a current, identified need while also allowing time for construction project completion and program refinement.
