CHICO, Calif. -  After two years of work, the renovation at Shasta Elementary in Chico is finally complete.  A ribbon-cutting celebration was held this week to mark the occasion.

 The $14.3 million dollar project included 31 new permanent classrooms ... adding six new classrooms to the campus.

A new Science Lab was also added, along with a new Administration Office and fenced entrance and a new Kindergarten Playground.
Classrooms now include Interactive TV/Teaching Stations.

Originally built in 1964, the school now features a new bus drop, expanded parking, new Exterior Safety lighting, new Library Space and new furniture campus-wide.

The work required the demolition of 14 portable buildings.  It was paid for through Measures E and K, and Developer Fees.

Windy with high fire danger today. Winds calm down tomorrow with mild temperatures and sunny skies all week. By next we cool down and even have the chance for rain.
