May 8 vote set for proposed Public Safety Academy move

By From page A4 | April 25, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Recommendations that include moving the Public Safety Academy to a new site that would allow for the school’s expansion won support Thursday when Fairfield-Suisun School District trustees discussed the changes that return for a vote May 8.

“It is all positive,” Trustee Pat Shamansky said.

The academy would move from its Atlantic Avenue site to the current location of Sem Yeto High School, which is proposed to relocate with satellite programs at high school campuses.

The move and expansion of the academy would be for the 2015-16 school year.

About 1,000 students could attend school at the proposed new site. The academy’s current enrollment is 481.

Other recommended changes include reopening the site of Mary Bird School as an early childhood education center. Construction costs would be $830,000. The Matt Garcia Learning Center would be aligned with Bridge-to-Success under another recommendation.

Kelly Morgan, assistant superintendent for business, said the recommended plans are a package.

“If one piece is not completed,” she said, “the other pieces will not fall into place.”

Shamansky said that things can change in school district planning.

“Sometimes we have to undo something that we’ve decided six months earlier,” she said.

    A package deal? Well, I hope the school board doesn't forget rust proofing, fabric protection, paint protection, and maybe even an extended warranty or two from Ms. Morgan on these upsells she's planning for us.
