DUBLIN — Dublin High School officially opened its new science and engineering building on its campus, adding 15 new classrooms to the school.
The school district held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday morning for the new space, which also will feature a shop space, an academic support space, a weight room and break-out spaces for students. It adds another 47,000 square feet to the campus.
The new building cost the district $31.5 million and was funded by taxpayers through Measures C and E. The $184 million Measure C was approved in 2004, and Dublin voters passed Measure C, a $99 million bond measure, in 2012.
The new building is part of Dublin Unified’s strategy to deal with overcrowding in its schools as enrollment increases. The district also plans to build a second high school in the district, called Emerald High.
The new building was set to have a ceremony on March 26, before high school students returned to school, but was postponed because of the tragic death of school board Trustee Catherine Kuo just two days before. Students began using the new classrooms March 29.
