ADVISORY ... for Sept. 29 (Friday)
--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 27, 2000
Innovative New School Brings Solution to School Crowding Crisis
WHAT: Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante will be the keynote speaker at a dedication ceremony to commemorate the completion of the first permanent developer-built public school in the state, Woodrow Wilson Elementary School, in the Eagle Glen Community of Corona. This innovative school became a reality in record time - 13 months. Typically, elementary schools take 30-48 months to complete. The school is part of the Corona-Norco Unified School District. Other honored guest speakers include Congressman Ken Calvert and Mayor Jeff Bennett. WHERE: Woodrow Wilson Elementary School 1750 Spyglass Drive Corona, CA 92883 Directions: From the 15 Freeway, take the Cajalco exit and head west which turns into Eagle Glen Parkway, turn right onto Riviera Drive. The school is located on the corner of Riviera Drive and is directly on your left. WHEN: 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 29, 2000 BACKGROUND: Wilson Elementary, which will open in October, is the first public school designed and built under Senate Bill 50 (SB 50) and Proposition 1A, the $6.7 billion school bond measure. SB 50 changed the way in which schools could be financed and built, allowing developers in new communities to negotiate with school districts the option of building schools up front with the developer fees. This type of venture, like Woodrow Wilson Elementary School, is projected to save Californians millions of tax dollars and help eliminate school overcrowding. The dedication event is being sponsored by The Forecast Group, developer of the Eagle Glen community and school, and TurnKey schools of America, the company that designed and built Woodrow Wilson Elementary in cooperation with the Corona-Norco Unified School District. The community is invited to the dedication ceremony. Student ambassadors of Wilson Elementary School will welcome guests. EDITORS' NOTE: Photo and interview opportunities with elected officials, executives of The Forecast Group and TurnKey Schools of America, Corona-Norco Unified School District representatives, teachers, parents and students of Wilson Elementary will be available.
