    The Baylands Development

    Overview
    The Baylands is a planned development in Brisbane. It will include 7 million square feet of commercial space with new research and development labs, and 2,200 new residences. This Bayland property is placed within the Bayshore School District and the Jefferson Union High School District attendance areas.

    The developer, Universal Paragon predicts that the Baylands will generate another 100 JUHSD students, and has committed to building a school. In partnership with the Bayshore District, we are thinking about a school that serves students in grades six through twelve where we could leverage resources to provide STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math), VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts) and World Languages programming across all grades levels.  An early-middle college program in partnership with Skyline College is also under consideration.

    A virtual community meeting was held on Monday, May 18th with the Bayshore, Brisbane, and JUHSD superintendents and Board of Education representatives. They discussed the Baylands development and how our three districts are responding and planning together for the eventual buildout.  You can view the full meeting below: 

    Additional Questions

    Why Now? 
    It is important to keep in mind that we are not considering opening a new school today. We are planning for the future ten to twenty years from now. The Baylands development bring 2,200 new residences, and we will need to open a new high school to accommodate this population influx. In fact, the developer already has land dedicated for a new high school.  

    What is the Cost?
    Universal Paragon, the developer, will carry the $25 - 40 million cost of building a new school. The large amount of commercial space means that the Baylands will offer long-term revenue generation and stability for the district. The Baylands will offer nearly 7 million square feet of commercial space, which will bring in revenue to the school district from taxes. 

    What would a new school look like? 
    The increase in residences will cause Bayshore Elementary School District to build a new school as well. We are collaborating with them on plans to build a hybrid grade 6-12 school. In partnership with the Bayshore District, we are thinking about a school that serves students in grades six through twelve where we could leverage resources to provide STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math), VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts) and World Languages programming across all grades levels.  An early-middle college program in partnership with Skyline College is also under consideration.
