1 Patrick Henry High CTE 1D Facilities Grant Request  Engineering Lab  Technical Theater/Production Management Facilities

2 Inadequate Facilities  Patrick Henry High School— 2,500 students, 1,000+ waiting list. Built 40 years ago during Baby Boom in 1968–Rushed construction. Prop. O and Prop. MM failed to address original deficiencies. Portable classrooms on site since 1968, now number 24—None to Code. Community-identified priorities support engineering and theater tech.

3 Engineering Program  Nearly 350 students now enrolled, requiring larger, better facilities.  Five-fold growth in last two years.  500+ is projected increase.  Scholarship opportunities now limited by inadequate facilities for ACE Mentoring Projects.  Competition with charters risks loss of student enrollment.

4 Engineering Lab Facilities  Unsafe workspaces. Back storage room has presses and students work outside on one workbench with drills, etc.  No computer space —students seated tall/short to fit in like sardines.  Conversion of current weight training room requires only a remodel of existing facilities.  Saves on cost and will remain close to other engineering classes.

5 Production and Managerial Arts-- Enrollment Surge  Over 480 students now enrolled.  65+ students are enrolled right now in Theatre Tech 1-2 and 3-4. Growth limited by inadequate facilities.  130 students in orchestra/band courses.  130 students in drama courses  80+ students in choral courses  Student requesting dance, but no room.  Not all students can go to SCPA.

6 Theater Tech/Production Management Program  Rapid growth in past two years.  Rapidly expanding relationship with local community performing arts programs mean expanded student opportunity.  Nexus with business and engineering programs (electrical and structural) make Theater Tech an efficient choice.  Production Management Pathway courses and Teacher identified for IASTE Training.* Courses begin * International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees

7 Theatre Tech/Production Management Facilities  Unsafe facilities. Stage is too small; students sit 6 inches from the edge during performances. Cramped wings make technical work dangerous.  Scene construction done outside on planters with power tools.  Night performances forced to use car lights for lighting when stage is double booked for parent meeting.  “Cafetorium” is smaller than elementary school auditorium at Ocean Beach Elementary with 240 students.

8 Theatre Tech/Production Management Facilities  Cafeteria is closed regularly--Only location for assemblies, awards, etc., so set ups close cafeteria to students. Result: fewer food purchases.  Does not meet student needs of a large, comprehensive high school.  No pit for band during frequent musical productions. Performances are crowded and seating is an embarrassment. Parents/students choose private schools.

9 Funding Sources  Prop S identified funds for auditorium.  CTE 1D Grant—PHHS has never been included in previous grant requests.  Community meetings held on Long Range Facilities and Prop. S Design Taskforce both identify these programs and auditorium as community priority.  On-Site Administrative Expertise: Vice Principal is a contractor who works closely with project managers. $500,000 saved from Prop MM for quad landscape project. Savings also in Prop. S.

10 Conclusion  Historically inadequate facilities threaten the future of current students and student enrollment.  Community priorities and partnership opportunities are available now, but may vanish without support.  Both programs move Patrick Henry High School forward.
