In the future at Diegueno, there will be some changes. Something called Prop AA is  going to take place in our school. This proposition will upgrade our school to 21st Century Learning Environment Standards, incorporate sustainable “Green” design, replace portable classrooms, parking circulation, and fix many other issues. Not to mention, the Cougar Hall will have a massive upgrade by the year of 2020. Here to answer some questions about this project, I interviewed Mr. Jeffrey Copeland, the principal of Diegueno.

What is Project AA?

“Project AA is a bond that was passed in the district several years ago, so each of the schools in the district is getting improvements with that bond money. So far, the only thing that has happened is that the media center was remodeled a few years ago. Each school is getting something done, and this is kind of like the next phase for Diegueno.”

What kind of changes will be made to our school?

“ So the next phase, which is happening soon, is the B building and the G building are going to be gutted and remodeled  this summer, so we can have all new features. We are going to have air conditioning put in both those buildings, so on the outside they are going to look similar, but the inside is going to look brand new. The P building is going to be demolished this summer and rebuilt and at the end it will have six classrooms and two computer labs. These two buildings, the B and G, will be available next year, so it’s like a summer job, but the P building is going to be off limits until 2020. To accomodate for that, next year, and the years until it is completed, we’re going to move them to the T buildings, but the T buildings are going to be refurbished this Spring. We’re going to put new carpet, paint, and stuff like that so it will look nicer.”

When will it be completed?

“ So for this phase, it’s coming up, the P building will be done for the start of the 2019. There is going to be other phases, down the road, but they are like long term phases, like the Cougar Cafe is going to be redone, as well as the Cougar Hall, the parking, but quite frankly that’s going to be several years down the road. Like, you’ll be married and have kids by then.”

 

To conclude, there will be many new changes happening at Diegueno, but most will be completed when we’re out and in high school.
