The Office of Public School Construction’s (OPSC) Executive Officer Lisa Silverman joined local officials in a grand opening ceremony on June 28 for Mountain House High School in Mountain House, California.
The new high school will provide learning space for approximately 2,000 Lammersville Unified School District students in San Joaquin County, while construction of the project bolstered the local economy through the creation of jobs and the purchase of building materials.
The project received over $31 million in state funding from the State Allocation Board’s (SAB) New Construction Program to build the high school. In addition to 76 classrooms, the school includes a multipurpose room and kitchen, gymnasium, library/media center, athletic field and tennis courts. The project also included the purchase of 46 acres for the new school site.
The New Construction Program provides state funds on a 50/50 state and local sharing basis for eligible projects.
OPSC serves as staff to the SAB and implements and administers a $35 billion voter-approved school facilities construction program.
