The Office of Public School Construction’s (OPSC) Executive Officer Lisa Silverman joined local officials in a groundbreaking ceremony on August 7 for the Magnolia Science Academy in Santa Ana.

The new K-12 charter school will provide learning space for up to 1,020 Santa Ana Unified School District students, while the construction of the project will bolster the local economy through the creation of jobs and the purchase of building materials.

The project will receive approximately $8.7 million in state funding from the State Allocation Board, and $8.7 million from a state loan. The project will provide 33 new permanent classrooms, and include robotics and computer labs, along with a new gymnasium and restrooms.

OPSC serves as staff to the State Allocation Board and implements and administers a $35 billion voter-approved school facilities construction program.
