Hart district may take next step toward Castaic high

Hart district board members could take another step toward making Castaic high school a reality on Wednesday.

Among the items on the school board’s agenda is approving some $200,000 in voter-approved bond money to prepare the environmental impact report on the proposed high school site at Romero Canyon.

William S. Hart Union High School District board members in July selected the Romero Canyon property in Castaic as their top choice for the long-sought high school.

The community just north of Santa Clarita has spent the last decade waiting for the district to build it a high school.
Castaic students currently attend West Ranch and Valencia high schools, which have been overcrowded at times.

The environmental impact report is just one hurdle facing the 23,000-student district to open a Castaic high school in time for the 2013-14 school year.

Board members will also decide whether to approve work examining potential landslide issues on the Romero Canyon property, owned by local developer Larry Rasmussen.

All contracts would be financed through Measure SA, the $300 million construction bond approved by local voters in 2008.
