Parents of elementary school students in the Castaic Union School District are invited to a preview of the future Castaic high school.

The William. S. Hart Union High School District will host the meeting from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at Castaic Middle School.

The meeting gives Castaic parents an in-depth look at the concept and design for the school now that the district governing board approved a potential site.

District representatives will describe the lengthy process used to identify the approved site and talk about the location's advantages on the basis of topography, proximity to student populations, access, availability of utilities, environmental concerns, expansion opportunities, traffic, community and county support.

Now that a potential site has been identified, negotiations will be conducted with the site's owners and environmental studies conducted before the site selection becomes final.

Parents who attend Wednesday's meeting will see a tentative timeline for location of a high school in Castaic, and details of design features for the new school.

"This will be a first-class high school, with all the amenities one would expect in a Hart district facility," said Rob Gapper, Hart district chief operating officer. "We are excited to think that plans can now go forward, and we want to share that excitement with Castaic parents."
