With its growing enrollment, Ripon High has nowhere to go but up.
That's according to Andy Strickland, who is the Director of Facilities, Operation & Safety Services at Ripon Unified School District.
He referenced the proposed Career Technical Education building.
"This will be the first two-story building at Ripon High," Strickland said at Monday's school board meeting.
He added that two contractors are interested in the building that's part of Phase 1 of the district's Facilities Assessment and Implementation master plan.
For students, the CTE program offers them a variety of career pathway courses, including ag mechanics, ag science, ag business, business management, software & systems development, and patient care, to name a few.'
The building would be constructed near the existing ag building on the south end of the RHS campus.
Strickland added that the contractors have already done a walk-through of the area.
"We're looking for approval of a contractor who would help us build that building," he said.
Trustees approved a lease-leaseback delivery method of the proposed building at last month's meeting.
The two-story CTE building, in addition, would be equipped with an elevator while providing more classrooms and workshops on campus.
RHS enrollment continues to hover around 1,000 students.
