Desert Star Community School

Cornville, Arizona

Master Plan for expansion of this Waldorf inspired charter school campus to support the needs of 250 students. The School has established a facility development plan and feasibility budget consisting of three phases. The goal of the plan is to establish permanent facilities for ten classrooms (pre-K through grade 8), a multi-use hall, special program facilities and recreation areas.

Phase I: (completed 12/2012): This Phase has been completed by others prior to the master plan involving construction of a 2 classroom unit for the middle school. The project commenced in September 2012 with a $400,000 loan from the Charter School Development Corporation and $35,000 in School funds.

Phase II: This phase consists of two primary components. A Multipurpose Building will be constructed to provide space for assemblies, performances, a lunch program, indoor recreation, parent education programs as well as community events for Cornville and the surrounding areas. A classroom unit will be included to provide classroom space for a separation of grades which are currently combined. A significant aspect of this phase involves establishing additional capacity and long term solutions for the electric power, water, and waste treatment needs of the growing School. The School has reached capacity limits for these infrastructure requirements. The budget for this phase is approximately $1.5 million. The Funding is provided by the USDA.

Phase III: Desert Star School’s original facilities consist of three pre-built modular buildings which house four classrooms and School administration, and two former residences converted to temporary classroom space. Construction of permanent classrooms and administration space to replace the temporary modular facilities within the next five years is desired. A computer lab is included in this phase.
A budget for this phase has not been established.

Phase IV: Additional classroom, shop and greenhouse space to be built as required to support the full capacity of 250 students. Kindergarten classrooms will be constructed to replace the present off-site kindergarten facilities.
