Phase 1 of the construction will completely rebuild over 16 acres of the campus, transforming it to meet 21st-century educational standards. Demolition of Buildings B and C will begin this week and will be complete before school resumes in Fall 2019. Students have already been moved into existing classroom space and should experience no disruption during construction. When complete, El Rancho High School will feature a brand new academic building with state-of-the-art learning suites and collaboration spaces; collegiate-caliber baseball and softball fields; a 4,500-seat stadium with new football, soccer, and track facilities; and a world-class special education complex.
The high school transformation is funded by Measure ER, a $200 million school construction bond approved by the voters of the El Rancho Unified School District in 2016, clearing the two-thirds approval threshold with 69.09% in support.
