Additional classrooms coming to Ocean Air

At its Dec. 14 meeting, the Del Mar Union School District heard, and unanimously approved, preliminary plans for two additional modular classrooms on the campus of Ocean Air.

Following an explanation from district superintendent James Peabody about the need for Ocean Air’s expansion, Chuck Forte, of San Diego-based Forte Architect, took the board through his presentation, which proposed two portable classroom buildings. The two buildings, he said, would be placed on the blacktop at the north end of the campus. Each self-contained modular classroom is 960 square feet, with room for 29 desks. The color of the classrooms, Forte said, would match the look of the existing campus buildings.

Forte estimated the costs for the two modular classrooms at $343,000, with an additional $34,460 in architect, inspection, electrical engineering design and Division of the State Architect (DSA) fees.

The project schedule would mandate that the district start construction on the portable classrooms in early June, with two months — “probably more than enough time,” Forte said — to finish building. The DMUSD would need to purchase the classrooms, which come with DSA pre-approval, in the beginning of March, Forte said.

Ocean Air Principal Ryan Stanley was on hand to weigh in on the project. He said the location of the two new classrooms was “not ideal,” and suggested they be moved to the western-most corner of the campus near the basketball courts.

Forte is scheduled to bring the final project report before the district again next month.
