Second High School Proposed in Empire Ranch Area

The Folsom Cordova Unified School District (FCUSD) is seeking an area for a second high school, in order to alleviate the incredible overcrowding at Folsom High School. Empire Ranch looks to secure the location – negotiations have begun with Elliott Homes, and a 1,500-student high school is scheduled to open in fall of 2006. District officials say the project is already $3-6 million over budget, without even knowing where the site will be located. More information is available in the Sacramento Bee.
