Another month towards the completion of Rancho Santana School is in the books and the amazing progress continues. The Hollister School District project is led by Director of Facilities Aaron Buzzetta.

Rancho Santana School, slated to open in August 2021. The school is located off Fairview Road and Sunnyslope Drive. The entire campus will include 12 acres of space for the expected 850-student capacity. Rancho Santana School will be the district’s 11th school. 

Recent project accomplishments include:

  1. Buildings B, C and D: steel structure complete, roof structure, fire sprinkler system installed, and ducting overhead. 
  2. Building E East: foundation complete and steel construction to begin.
  3. Buildings E West: foundation construction complete.
  4. Site work: Storm drains are 90% complete. 
  5. Utility trench and install is under construction. 

Superintendent Ochoa has been working closely with Mr. Buzzetta throughout the process. Ochoa said, “I really believe in the quality of the work being completed on-site. Residents in our community should drive out to Fairview Road and see the school taking shape.” 

Funding for the school has been secured by the school district through a combination of Bond measure funds and developer fees. Rancho Santana School will be a two-story school that consists of an administration building, library/media center, thirty-five classrooms, a playground, ball courts, and turf fields. The district’s Director of Facilities, Aaron Buzzetta, has taken the lead role in monitoring the school construction project. Buzzetta said, “Now that we’ve completed our foundation work, the project is ready to take vertical shape. We’ll start to build up and out.”
