ACTUAL USE

Qualitative Data

Adequacy for future-ready learning; student, staff, parent and community member needs.

FACILITY ASSESSMENT

Quantitative Data

Physical condition, lifespan and projected cost to maintain campus.

The Campus Guide uses two tools to assess each campus:

FACILITY ASSESSMENT

Professional consulting firm EMG examines the major components of El Rincon's site and buildings. Here is what they found:

ACTUAL USE

To understand how El Rincon functions daily and throughout the year, the qualitative assessment uses workshops, site walkthroughs and a forum to identify the priorities of the campus’ site committee—selected staff and leadership, and the campus’ actual users—parents and community members. Their findings are captured on the following aerial maps

Outside-In  shows the entire campus and focuses on the side and broader relationships

Inside-Out  zooms in and focuses on the individual buildings and outdoor spaces in-between

Outside - In

1.Drop-off / Pick-up

    •Loading distance is too short. Bi-        directional traffic flow  chaotic.          Lack of valets / parent volunteers.

    •Drop off loop length is too short         given the population and no

     valets

    •Parents double park in drop off           loop blocking the flow.

    •Parents drop off at front side,             instead of loading and block the         street.

2.Perimeter Security and Access 

   •Current hardware is problematic.        Keypads/cards are strongly

    desired.

   •In case of emergency, gates are           not wide enough for school                 population to exit safely

3.Staff Parking

    •Inadequate. As aides increase          (inclusionary practices),   

    situation  will only worsen. Need 

    70-75 parking spaces for school

    staff

Priorities

1. Enhance Drop-off / Pick-up
2. Expand Staff Parking Capacity
3. Enhance Security and Access
4. Expand Kitchen and 

    Dining Capacity
5. Replace Portables with Permanent 
    Classrooms 

6. Add 3 New Classrooms
7. Add Student Support Services
8. Add Large Group Assembly
9. Modernize and Renovate Existing 
    Buildings
10. Add and Enhance Outdoor     

    Learning

Next Steps

Using El Rincon’s Facility Assessment Report Card and Site Analysis, a customized Facility Master Plan is being developed to:


1. Propose strategies to address El Rincon’s unique needs and stated priorities
2. Guide future decisions at both the campus and district wide level
