By Staff | Oct 19, 2017

LAHAINA – A new classroom building is proposed at Lahainaluna High School to accommodate growth in enrollment.

The Lahainaluna High School Classroom Building Draft Environmental Assessment (Finding of No Significant Impact) is published in the state Office of Environmental Quality Control’s Oct. 8, 2017 issue of “The Environmental Notice.” Public comments on the project are due by Nov. 7, 2017.

A two-level, rectangular-shaped building with a ground floor building footprint of approximately 9,975 square feet is proposed.

Two general classrooms, a self-contained Special Education classroom, and itinerant room are programmed for the ground floor.

Space is also set aside for a faculty center, conference room, two offices, faculty and student restrooms, elevator, mechanical room, electrical room, telcom room, janitor’s closet and storage.

The second level of approximately 8,515 square feet provides five general classrooms, restrooms for faculty and students, elevator, electrical room, and a janitor’s room.

In total, seven general classrooms and a self-contained Special Education room are proposed. General classroom occupancy is projected at 20-25 students and 10-15 students for the Special Education classroom.

An accessible walkway over the Lahainaluna Ditch will connect the new building with school facilities to the east.
