Point Arena High School was built in 1969. Voters passed a bond in 2000 resulting in the addition of four new modular buildings including a computer room, four classrooms, two bathrooms, and a science lab.
Our new administration building includes offices for the principal, counselor, high school office staff, the auditorium lobby, restrooms, a conference room and the band classroom. The cafeteria, gymnasium/locker rooms, library, and art room have been modernized and new roofs installed in the gym, maintenance building, and bus barn. There have also been many upgrades on site such as paved walkways and landscaping. Upgrades to the athletic fields include new bleachers, an announcer’s booth and fencing at the baseball dugout.
The school is well maintained and cleaned at least once per day. Our school provides a safe, clean and functional environment for learning through proper facilities maintenance and campus supervision. Our four maintenance workers are on campus from 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. (various shifts).
The District participates in the State School Deferred Maintenance Program, which provides state matching funds on a dollar-for-dollar basis, to assist school districts with expenditures for major repair or replacement of existing school building components. Typically, this includes roofing, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, electrical systems, interior or exterior painting, and floor systems. For the 2011-11 school year, the District budgeted $22,282 for the Deferred Maintenance Program. This represents 0.07% of the District’s general fund budget.
