Summary: On March 11, the Board acknowledged Eagle Peak’s enrollment increase and retention of their 5th grade students. Eagle Peak has met with neighbors and City of Walnut Creek to ascertain any questions or concerns. Neither group had objection to the project. Pursuant to an agreement dated May 20, 2003 between District and the City of Walnut Creek, District provided notification of Eagle Peak’s intent to increase student capacity and compliance with applicable requirements.

As such, Eagle Peak wishes to reconfirm anticipated increase in enrollment for the 2013-14 school year by approximately 20-35 students. Doing so allows the school to accommodate its existing 5th grade students by adding a 6th grade. Eagle Peak’s current charter authorizes K-6 Grades. If the school adds 20-35 students, total enrollment will be approximately 213-223. Per discussion with city and based on Eagle Peak projections, proposed increase is anticipated to be exempt from additional CEQA review.

In addition to enrollment increase, as owner of the property on which Eagle Peak is situated, Board action is required for placement of one additional 1440 square foot, DSA certified, temporary mobile modular building for 2013-14 school year. All associated costs of temporary building will be at Eagle Peak’s expense.

Eagle Peak has also attached a 5 year budget forecast indicating their ability to pay for an additional structure. Eagle Peak’s proposed site plan is attached.
Funding: N/A

Recommendation: Authorize staff to work with Eagle Peak staff to facilitate placement of additional temporary classroom in accordance with all DSA requirements.
