07/21/2009 06:16:55 PM PDT -- An appellate court has refused to halt construction of a new Los Angeles Unified high school that will cater to Carson students.
The city of Long Beach, where the 14-acre campus is being built adjacent to the Carson border, had argued that the school district did not adequately account for the impact of the new facility in a state-required environmental report.
Long Beach last year appealed a Los Angeles Superior Court decision in the school district's favor - a ruling that was affirmed July 16 by a three-judge panel of the 2nd District Court of Appeal.
The $145 million school, set to open in 2011 at the corner of Carson Street and Santa Fe Avenue, is expected to house about 1,800 students from Carson and Banning high schools. Construction began in October.
South Region HS #4, 56.40019
Northeast Corner of Carson St. and Santa Fe Ave., Long Beach, CA 90810
The District has acquired the site and intends to build a new high school. This school will consist of four small learning communities that include classrooms, science labs, and academy administration. School facilities shared by the small learning communities will include performing arts classrooms, a library, multi-purpose room, two gymnasiums, food service and lunch shelter, central administration, playfields, and underground parking.
