Full background information about the El Segundo Middle School gymnasium project, timeline, oversight, steps taken to bring this project to fruition, related communication, and answers to questions asked by members of the community.
The El Segundo Middle School gymnasium was recognized as a need and incorporated in the Long-Range Facility Master Plan in 2016. The ESUSD Board reached consensus on the final location in November 2019 and that decision was memorialized through formal Board action taken on April 27, 2021, at a duly noticed and regularly scheduled public Board meeting. The primary consideration regarding the placement of the gymnasium to align with the other buildings is student safety. The gymnasium location has not changed since it was approved.
The construction plans are completed and await final approval by the Division of State Architects. The District is moving forward to implement this gymnasium, and we remain committed to completing it with plans to break ground this Fall. Our students need and deserve this facility, and its location best meets safety and site concerns.
