  • North Building Traffic Flow Change

    On Monday, Feb. 22, traffic flow on the North side of the campus will reverse. 

    The exit will become the entrance and vice versa. This is due to the complete closing of the old driver's education area, which would create a grid lock situation at dismissal if the flow were left intact. A traffic map is attached: Traffic Map for HS North. This will be similar to the reversal of traffic flow previously instituted at South.

  • South Building Front Parking Lot to be Closed

    On Monday, Jan. 18, the South Building front parking lot will be closed so that construction of the new high school can proceed. Here is a detailed map showing the changes.

    • All student parking will be across Westerly Parkway in the North Building lot.
    • Faculty parking will be in the South Building rear lot by the main office, and in temporary lots by the North Building’s Logan Avenue entrance and by Community Field.
    • The North main student drop-off/pick-up point will be at the North Building’s Logan Avenue entrance.
    • The South student drop-off/pick-up point, for before and after school only, will be at the designated area behind the South Building via the loop road starting at O’Bryan Lane.  Look for the signs.
    • During the school day, the South student drop-off/pick-up point will be in the parking area outside of the main South office.
    • The main student travel path between the North and South buildings will pass by Welch Community Pool and lead to the South main entrance.
    • Another student travel route will be a gravel path from the South auditorium paralleling O’Bryan Lane and leading to a Westerly Parkway crossing.

    For now, the access road from the North parking lot to Plaza Drive will remain open.

  • Project updates: December 15, 2015

    On Dec. 15, SCASD Director of Physical Plant Ed Poprik, State College Area School District Board of School Directors President Amber Concepcion and board member Gretchen Brandt spoke about the State High Project at the Centre Region Council of Governments meeting. The trio briefed COG representatives on the project’s costs and progress.

    At this stage, the construction management team is securing the necessary permits and making other preparations to begin the first demolition work on the western wing of the South Building early next year. A winter start date has not been established yet, and work is not anticipated over the holiday break. Poprik compared the project now to a train getting underway, noting it needs a bit of time to gain speed and move forward.

  • Project updates: November 30, 2015

    On Monday, Nov. 30, the State College Area School District Board of School Directors awarded construction base bids and bid alternates for the State High Project.

    • The seven low base bids — general contractor, sitework, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, fire protection and food service equipment —  totalled $117,023,100.
    • The Board voted to award $3,479,000 of bid alternate options, rejecting $15,066,800 worth of others.
    • Accepted bid alternates included air conditioning and locker room renovations in the existing North Building gym, a North Building solar array, a district satellite kitchen, a roof greenhouse and stage panel lights.
    • The Board voted to reject the vegetated roof and Innovation Center bid alternate options. But in each case, it approved a motion to direct the district administration to research “best-value options” for a substitute project in the future.
    • With base bids, alternate bids and soft costs, the project’s total cost to the district will be $137,249,182. This reflects the district receiving two LEED grants of about $4 million for the project.
