Ripon High getting first 2-story building
ripon high ag
The proposed career technical education structure will be built near the existing ag complex at the Ripon High campus.

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.
