Public Safety Academy in Fairfield may expand, move

From page A3 | April 23, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — The Public Safety 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 – under recommendations Fairfield-Suisun School District trustees will discuss Thursday.

The move and expansion of the safety academy would be for the 2015-16 school year, according to the recommendations.

Kathy Frazer, principal of the academy, said, “Anytime we can add more students to the program, that’s a good thing.”

About 1,000 students could attend school at the proposed new site. The safety academy enrollment is now 481.

The change involves a one-time relocation cost of $31,000.

Placing satellite programs of Sem Yeto on high school campuses involves a one-time relocation cost of $18,000. The population at Rodriguez High School may not be large enough to provide a full satellite program, according to the school district.

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.

Trustees received information about the planned initiatives at an April 15 study session.

They meet in open session starting at 6 p.m. Thursday in Board Room No. 108 at the school district offices, 2490 Hilborn Road in Fairfield.

Reach Ryan McCarthy at 427-6935 or rmccarthy@dailyrepublic.net.

    Why don't you rename your porker pig academy after Ernst Rohm or Barack Obama?

    Ok, so they closed Sullivan to save $800,000, yet they can spend $830,000 on a closed and a declared-surplus property we're suppose to be trading away to set up what sounds like a pre-school? These guys need to get their stories straight.

    I do not believe the low ball figures they are reporting to the paper. They gutted Mary Bird and now they want to refurbish/repurpose the site at a substantial cost?

    woody even if they re-purpose the sillivan school it will be at their cost not ours The academy is a private run school Not run by the district. ALthough I dont like the idea of those kids that are going there now back in the regular high schools with kids that are already under enough stress to have to be along side them. These schools in fairfield have fights, weapons, drugs, and dis respect on a daiily basis. It really is a horrible atmosphere.

    They're talking about Mary Bird School, not Sullivan. When they were discussing Mary Bird during the surplus property discussions they said it would cost too much to refurbish and maintain as a school. And now this. And the school district still owns Sullivan. And the academy is NOT a privately run/financed school.

    Another disgusting manifestation of your welfare and police State. Police State academies that only Rohm and Himmler could be proud of!
