The report will be submitted to the Hart Governing Board for approval at the July 16, 2014 regular school board meeting.
The Project Site consists of a 198-acre “School Site,” which includes the 58-acre site for development of the high school campus, according to the report.
The building area will include several classroom buildings, a library, a performing arts building, a multipurpose building, a physical education building with gymnasium and an administrative building, according to the report. Athletic facilities would include a 5,000-seat football/soccer stadium with a running track, tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball and softball fields and other play fields.
“We are committed to building a high-quality, comprehensive high school in Castaic to serve the community,” said Rob Challinor, superintendent of the William S. Hart High School District. “Population projections and home building plans for the Castaic and Val Verde areas show a need for a high school in the area in the future and building it now in anticipation of this growth is financially prudent, good for the area economy and will well serve families in the short term, as well.”
The school officials has plans for grading and construction of two above-ground water tanks, potential broadcasting facilities, potential advanced energy technology, such as solar photovoltaic panels for electricity and storm water runoff facilities, according to the report.

The projected opening of Castaic High School is August 2017, to ninth graders only, then adding a grade each year until grades 9-12 are on campus.
Local voters overwhelmingly supported Measure SA, a $300 million bond measure in 2008, which in part will pay for acquisition and construction of the school site.
