The walls go up for school district office

FAIRFIELD - Contractor's machines pulled up the first concrete three-story walls of the new Fairfield-Suisun School District building Thursday morning.

The new $14 million school district office is expected to be completed by June 2006, said Gary Falati, Fairfield-Suisun School Board member.

"This is the first time ever that we've had a new district office," he said of the three-year project.

Currently, the district office on 1975 Pennsylvania Ave. is what used to be David Weir Elementary School. Falati said the district's administration has worked there for the past 10 years and needs a new site.

When the new 75,000-square-foot district office is completed, the old school district building will be renovated and transformed back to an elementary school. Starting in fall 2006, Fairfield facilities and operations will work on the David Weir site to turn it back into a school, which will welcome students from Bransford and Fairview schools because of ongoing overcrowding.

The new school district building atop Hilborn Avenue and overlooking Fairfield will include a warehouse and a chamber where the School Board can meet, instead of the City Council chamber at 1000 Webster St.
