EarthLab Masterplan Approved by School Board

At a full meeting in September of the San Diego Unified School District Board of Education, Groundwork won unanimous and enthusiastic support for a 40 year agreement to operate the EarthLab. On hand to present the request to the Board were a number of Groundwork community partners, including SDG&E Director of Community Relations Pedro Villegas, and UCSD representative Dr. Hugh Mehan. Board members and District staff praised Groundwork’s accomplishments in transforming the vacant school district  4acre parcel into a fully-functioning outdoor science center for thousands of District E students. They expressed full confidence in Groundwork’s ability to move the project into its next phase of development, to include completion of the EarthLab masterplan.
