Project Title:  Scotts Valley Middle School Modernization


Project Location:  The approximately 8.5-acre-acre project site is located at 8 Bean Creek Road, Scotts Valley, CA 95066, at the northern corner of the intersection of Scotts Valley Drive and Bean Creek Road.


Project Description:  The Scotts Valley Unified School District proposes a partial reconstruction and modernization of the Scotts Valley Middle School campus including:

  • Demolition and removal of the existing gymnasium, snack shack, portable classrooms on the lower campus, two maintenance buildings, and two existing free standing classrooms;
  • Construction of a new library, gymnasium, and kitchen facilities;
  • Interior renovations of the existing multi-purpose building and three classroom buildings;
  • Installation of pre-fabricated administration and classroom buildings supporting 12 classrooms;
  • Resurfacing and restriping of the driveway and main parking lot;
  • Replacement of the majority of the existing on-site sanitary sewer, storm drain, and fire and domestic water systems; and
  • Replacement of landscaping, including planting native species and required Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) improvements for access.


    Upon completion of the project there would be a total of 24 classrooms.  The proposed project would not increase student enrollment beyond the current 620 students; however, the overall proposed school design would have capacity for 650 students.  Construction of the project would occur in phases over an approximately two year period.
