Summary: On June 28, 2011 the Board of Education approved facility enhancements for each of the comprehensive high schools and Olympic High School. As part of this greater approval the Board approved the installation of an electronic marquee for Concord High School.

Because the installation of the electronic marquee will be inspected by the Department of the State Architect, staff requests that the Board adopt a resolution, pursuant to Government Code Section 53094(b), to render inapplicable the City of Concord zoning ordinances which would otherwise apply to the Concord High School marquee project. Government Code section 53094(b) provides that a school district, by a vote of two-thirds of its members, may render city or county zoning ordinances inapplicable to a proposed use of property when such use is not for non-classroom facilities. The proposed marquee will serve an important function to notify, instruct, alert and inform students, staff and the community of educational events thereby supporting the District's educational purpose and mission. Accordingly, the exemption permitted by Government Code section 53094(b) is appropriate for the proposed use.
