SANTA CLARITA – The Hart District has cut its construction budget deficit by more than half – down to about $50 million – by scaling back projects and tapping funding options, but officials say there is still more work to be done. A report released Wednesday night by the Dolinka Group consultants says the Hart Union High School District’s cash shortfall, originally thought to top $115 million, has been reduced to $53 million. The district scrapped a plan for an alternative high school on the Synergy Keystone development in Canyon Country, sparing about $60 million. It also reduced the cost of the impending Castaic High School by $27 million and identified an additional $30 million in extra funding. But Rob Gapper, Hart’s chief operations officer, said funding was increased for modernizing Hart High School and Placerita Canyon and Sierra Vista junior highs, as well as for planned performing arts centers at Saugus and Canyon high schools – projects the community has pressured the district to complete. The district’s long-term capital budget is for construction, reconstruction and land purchases to serve the growing district. It is separate from the yearly operating budget. “It is great that our shortfall has been cut almost in half,” said Sue Guthrie, Hart’s chief financial officer. “But we are still working towards balancing our revenue and expenditures.” Guthrie said the district’s accounting department will be assessing the value of district-owned properties, such as the former district offices and the old Bowman High School site – the first step toward selling off those assets. The report also suggests the district look to the Santa Clarita Valley Facilities Foundation – a nonprofit organization set up to purchase land for the Hart district – for more donations. Since the foundation’s inception in 1998, it has purchased several parcels including the land for Golden Valley High School; a 70-acre site at Hasley and Sloan canyon roads in Castaic, which was intended for Castaic High School; and two sites in Canyon Country for a junior high and high school. Rick Patterson, founder and member of the foundation board, said its mission is to buy land for schools, not to fund district projects. “Like good farmers we’ve planted our seeds, planning for the district’s future need for sites,” Patterson said. “But we’re flexible.” District officials are looking to every avenue for the $50 million to finance their list of projects, including the possibility of a bond measure on an upcoming ballot, Gapper said. email@example.com (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
