After years of development and construction, the San Ramon Valley High School new classroom building project is getting ready to house its first batch of students, and to celebrate, school district officials will be holding an open house giving residents a tour of the building in Danville next week.

At the May 16 open house, San Ramon Valley Unified School District staff will be on hand to give a few remarks commemorating the occasion, followed by tours of the 105,000-square-foot building which will house three stories worth of classrooms, administrative offices and a student leadership center, among other facilities.

Construction of the structure began in the summer of 2016, and was originally approved by the district in order to remove and replace 45 single-story class spaces with a larger number of classrooms and science laboratories in the new three-story building that will offer more square footage, consolidated into a smaller footprint.

After the building is complete and ready for students, district staff said they will begin construction of a new parking lot which will be located between the new building and the Iron Horse Regional Trail and will be able to restore the sports fields where the classroom portables have been located.

Teachers and administrators will begin moving into the building later this month with full occupancy expected to be achieved in time for the start of the 2019-20 school year.

The estimated $64 million development is the largest of the SRVUSD’s Measure D funded projects, the $260 million school facilities bond passed by district voters in November 2012 with the intent of modernizing the infrastructure and learning environment at schools throughout the district.

To view how those dollars have been spent on SRVHS, residents are welcome to attend the open house and take a free tour on May 16, from 3:30-5 p.m. at SRVHS, 501 Danville Blvd., just outside downtown Danville.

Residents can learn more about Measure D and the projects it funds through the SRVUSD's online Measure D info page.
