With the passage of Measure GG in 2018, The Sunnyvale School District was empowered to continue with its vision to transform their school learning environments in an impactful and meaningful way. A vision that began with a massive reconfiguration of Bishop Elementary School continues with a major multi-phase project for Ellis Elementary School.
This week, Aediseans visited the Ellis Elementary School Modernization Project and toured the construction site for Phase 1, a new 2-story classroom building, which is scheduled to be completed in the Spring of 2023. It will have a total of 22 classrooms, will be adjacent to a new, central campus courtyard, and feature wide open walkways, large windows for natural light, and HVAC units for each classroom.
Phase 1 of the multi-phased modernization project is just the beginning of this campus transformation, and subsequent phases will begin immediately after the completion of this one. The project has been phased to minimize disruption to the school while maximizing the transformation. The school will receive a new Multipurpose Building with an outdoor covered lunch seating area, a new Library, additional kindergarten classrooms, new fencing around the entire campus, and re-envisioned pick-up/drop-off areas to ease congestion on the campus and surrounding neighborhood. The entire campus modernization is expected to be complete by 2025.
Great care was taken with Sunnyvale School District and Sausal Corporation to ensure this project remains on schedule and ultimately delivers the programmatic requirements Ellis Elementary needs. We are honored to be making a #PositiveLastingImpact for this wonderful school.
