Based on the Woodland Joint Unified School District's 2020 School Fee Justification Study it is projected that the Woodland Research and Technology Park would generate at build out an additional (376) K-6, (104) Middle School, and (222) High School Students. The actual student generation rates would likely be less than these estimates given the current capture rates. To account for the facility needs for these additional students, all residential and commercial construction within the project area will be subject to the District's adopted School Impact fees.
The District’s Facility Master Plan anticipates capacity to be available at the current middle school and high school sites to accommodate the students at these grade levels. At the primary grades, it is projected that the District will need to construct an additional K-6 school in the southeast area of the city. To accommodate this projected need, the Woodland Research and Technology Park Specific Plan identifies the location of a future 12 acre school site just north of The Yard, at the southeast corner of the Parkland Avenue extension and Road B in the Medium Density Residential Zone. The City will require the Developer to commit to set aside the land for the school site for sufficient time for the District to determine if and when it will proceed with construction of the elementary school. The specific terms of this commitment are being discussed between the City and the District and will be incorporated into the Development Agreement between the City and Developer as part of the final project entitlements. Should the District elect not to proceed with construction of the elementary school, the identified site would develop consistent with the underlying residential zoning.
