Lights, Camera, Action! San Diego Unified Dedicates Live Broadcast Facility at San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts

WHAT: San Diego Unified School District leaders will join 150 students, parents, community members and school staff in celebrating the newly renovated live broadcast facility and upgrades to the school's theater at the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) in Paradise Hills. Guests will have an opportunity to tour the facilities during an open house immediately following the dedication ceremony.

WHEN: Thursday, May 21, ceremony (1:15-1:45 p.m.), tour of facilities with student demonstrations (1:45-2:15 p.m.), and student musical production of "Kiss me, Kate!" (2:30 p.m.)

WHERE: San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts School, 2425 Dusk Dr., S.D. 92139 --Media parking will be available on site. (A site photo with the designated area is available.)

VISUALS: Students singing the "Star Spangled Banner" during the dedication ceremony, student speakers, and ceremonial ribbon cutting, tour of live broadcast facilities with student demonstrations (immediately following dedication ceremony), and student musical production of "Kiss me, Kate!" starting at 2:30 p.m.,

SPEAKERS/INTERVIEWS: Marne Foster, president of the board of education; Lamont Jackson, Area 2 superintendent; Tim Farson, principal of SCPA; Lee Dulgeroff, chief, facilities planning & construction officer; Al Love, director of College, Career & Technical Education; Josh Araujo, SCPA student, and Pat Clark, SCPA teacher. Board President Marne Foster will be available for interviews after the dedication ceremony. (Interviews available in Spanish.)

PROJECT INFO: The newly renovated facilities for SCPA's Live Broadcast Program involved remodeling the existing television studio and associated spaces into an integrated media communications technology space that enables students to work in an environment with industry-standard equipment. The existing area was stripped and reconstructed to include: a soundproof media lab with a control room, three multimedia editing bays, one soundproof studio editing bay, a new television studio and media room, one instructor's office, a meeting room and additional storage rooms for props and sets.

The existing 500-seat Florence Johnson Grand Theatre and the school's Little Theater received improvements to their live broadcast capabilities through the installation of upgraded electrical, lighting, sound and acoustical properties. These upgrades allow school productions to be broadcast remotely.

This project also included Americans with Disabilities Act upgrades, making the facilities and performances accessible to everyone.

The nearly $3.7 million project was funded by a California Proposition 1D grant, and San Diego Unified School District's Propositions S & Z, general obligation bond measures passed in 2008 and 2012 respectively.
