Teaching Class ca. 2000

The Office of Public School Construction’s (OPSC) Deputy Executive Officer Barbara Kampmeinert joined local officials in a ribbon cutting ceremony earlier this month to celebrate the opening of the Voices College-Bound Language Academy in San Jose.

The new K-8 charter school will provide learning space for up to 438 Franklin-McKinley Elementary School District students. The project received approximately $4.4 million in state funding from the State Allocation Board, and $4.4 million from a state lease. The project provides 18 new permanent classrooms including a multi-purpose and administration building.

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