Woodrow Wilson Elementary School Dedication Event
1750 Spyglass Drive
Sponsored by: The Forecast Group & TurnKey Schools of America
INNOVATIVE NEW SCHOOL BRINGS SOLUTION TO SCHOOL CROWDING CRISIS
An historic dedication ceremony commemorated the completion of the first permanent developer-built public school in the state, Woodrow Wilson Elementary School in Corona, at 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 29, at the school site. This innovative school became a reality in record time - 13 months. Typically, elementary schools take 30-48 months to complete.
The school is part of the Corona-Norco Unified School District and is located at the corner of Riviera and Spyglass Drive in the Eagle Glen community of Corona. Wilson Elementary is the first public school designed and built under Senate Bill 50 (SB 50) and Proposition 1A, the $6.7 billion school bond measure. SB 50 changed the way in which schools could be financed and built, allowing developers in new communities to negotiate with school districts the option of building schools up front with their developer fees. This type of venture, like Woodrow Wilson Elementary School, is projected to save Californians millions of tax dollars and help eliminate school overcrowding. The dedication ceremony is being sponsored by The Forecast Group, developer of the Eagle Glen community and school, and TurnKey Schools of America, the company that designed and built Woodrow Wilson Elementary School in cooperation with the Corona-Norco Unified School District. The community was invited to the dedication ceremony. Student ambassadors of Wilson Elementary School welcomed guests. The new 44,820-square-foot, 9.1-acre facility is the first school in the history of the State of California to be designed and built by a developer rather than the school district. This inaugural enterprise is expected to set a new standard for the future of school construction.
