Hart district arranges to speed up construction for Castaic High School

In an effort to speed up construction on the Castaic High School project, members of the Hart district governing board approved an item Wednesday that will allow district officials and legal counsel to execute necessary documents and county forms and get board review and approval afterward.

Ben Rodriguez, chief operations officer for the William S. Hart Union High School District, said Wednesday district officials are concerned about how long it has taken to get Los Angeles County to sign off on some forms that are necessary for construction to begin on the northerly access road to the school site.

Rodriguez told The Signal last week that construction has yet to begin on the long-planned school, which is scheduled to open in 2016.

Rodriguez said the board vote will allow the district to move forward with more routine matters — such as agreements to recycle construction and demolition debris — without having to wait for the next regularly scheduled board meeting.

All those documents and forms would be reviewed and ratified by the board, Rodriguez said.

“In order to avoid any additional delays to the construction of the Castaic High School site, district staff is requesting that the district superintendent be authorized to execute required form documents and to provide such forms to the governing board for ratification at the next regularly scheduled board meeting,” reads a board report on the item.
