Elementary School Updates -- WestPark and Fiddyment Farm


Superintendent Derk Garcia and Dennis Snelling (Roseville City School District), and John Tallman (for developer Westpark Communities), were in attendance to give general updates on Rose Elementary Schools and a presentation on the new W-70 school project that will begin soon.  

Mr. Snelling started with some general updates and an overview of current intended school boundaries.  He indicated there will be 5 more schools planned in the future -- W-70 in WestPark (2017-18), F-71 in the North Fiddyment Farm area (2020-21), WB-80 (2024-25) in the Westbrook section (south of WestPark); C-80 in the Creekview Plan (no date given), and potentially another elementary in the Placer Ranch project (if eventually annexed to the City of Roseville).  Other general information:

•    Schools have great academics at all schools old and new; he noted that Woodbridge Elementary is celebrating its 80th anniversary.  
•    $1,000,000 will go towards upgrades for electronic technology.
•    Goals are to maintain safe schools, reduce class sizes, introduce music programs for K-5th grades, and add language programs for middle schools.

The 3rd elementary school in the West Roseville specific Plan will be on Parcel W-70 in the WestPark area off Brookstone Drive, scheduled to start groundbreaking next month, and open for classes in August of 2017.   W-70 will have an attached park city park at the bottom; will be built to house 600 students, and they are looking to have polished concrete flooring throughout (for cost savings).   

F-71 in the North Fiddyment Farm area will be next, approximately 2021.  ‘Portables’ will be used at Junction as needed for overflow.  Eventually, a school will be built at the Westbrook area (south of Pleasant Grove).  Those students from the southern WestPark area currently attending Fiddyment Farm school will move back to the W-70 school, and then eventually that area will be redistricted to attend the Westbrook school.  That school does not currently have an agreement to be developer- built like the WRSP schools have agreements (Junction, Fiddyment Farm, W-70 and F-71).  

A question was asked about middle school capacity to accommodate all the future students:  Mr. Snelling indicated both Cooley and Chilton are under capacity right now, can house about 1200 students and Cooley is currently about 300 under capacity now. Eventually, there may be another middle school in the Placer Ranch development.
