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.
