FUTURE TECH-READY CAMPUS

This state-of-the-art campus will have the ability to construct new energy technology, such as photo-voltaic solar panels to make electricity.

CREATIVE WATER CONTROL

When Castaic High opens, flooding won’t be a concern. The campus has an extra parking lot that doubles as a storm water run-off evaporative basin.

A MUCH SMALLER CARBON FOOTPRINT

The Hart District statistic about saving miles in commute time IS terribly important. Just imagine, multiplying the average student, parent and bus transportation of 12 miles EACH day, then multiplying THAT over the course of not just a school year, but many school years. Imagine how much pollution will be eliminated from our Santa Clarita Valley skies.

SAVING TREES

This is a small factoid, but shows the Hart District was thinking. In the past, to build a project this huge, thousands of wooden stakes would be used to mark the site for everything from grading to where to set the water cooler. Today, using Global Positioning Technology, Zero (0) wooden stakes were used.

CLEANER, GREENER CONSTRUCTION

When you visited a big construction site, you’d see often dozens of huge construction equipment, spewing clouds of noxious gasses into the air. Using the new, cleaner construction equipment, the big Tier 3 earth movers and graders used on the Castaic Project are light years cleaner than the older models.
