The small health office, located inside the administation office building at Sierra Vista Junior High is one of the officeds which will be upgraded in the modernization of the school.

A $10.5 million modernization project at Sierra Vista Junior High School received approval Wednesday from William S. Hart Union High School District board officials.

Construction on the project is scheduled to begin in May, with the first phase of renovated and updated classrooms ready for student use in August 2010.

The modernization on the aging campus involves upgrading the junior high school's eight classroom buildings, library and administration buildings.

Classrooms will be equipped with technology to integrate computers, televisions and LCD projectors.

Part of the plan makes way for renovated student and faculty restrooms, a handicapped-accessible campus and new air-conditioning and fire-alarm systems.

Project funding comes from Measure V, a $158 million bond approved by Santa Clarita voters in 2001.

A second phase of construction to replace portable classrooms with permanent classrooms, modernize the multi-purpose room, kitchen and gymnasium would begin soon after the first phase is complete.

The second phase will use Measure SA money.

The first round of district modernization involved Arroyo Seco Junior, Canyon and Saugus high schools.

The district is currently working on modernization projects at Placerita Junior, Sierra Vista Junior and Hart High School.
