At recent board meetings some very exciting decisions were made regarding the growth of the Jefferson School District. First, the Board named Tracy Hills School #1 Corral Hollow Elementary School and Ellis School #1 Franklyn Cole Elementary School. Franklyn was dedicated to Tracy youth and spent 30 years on the Jefferson School District Board. He was truly committed to giving every child a chance and would always go above and beyond to ensure the students had the opportunity to succeed.
Second, the Board selected HED Architects out of San Francisco to design Ellis School #1. PJHM Architects (the architects of Traina and Jefferson School) was selected back in 2013 to design Corral Hollow Elementary School. The design process will start in earnest in January on the two K-8 schools with a capacity around 800 students each. The schools are currently projected to open in August of 2022.
