Board of Education unanimously approves name for IUSD’s next K-8


In accordance with the district’s policy to assign names based on an adjacent street, park or village, the IUSD Board of Education voted unanimously on Tuesday night to name IUSD’s third K-8 campus Beacon Park School, referencing the village in which it will be built.

With construction underway, the school is scheduled to open in August 2016.

Beacon Park School will be located south of Sand Canyon Avenue near Irvine Boulevard.  The address will be 200 Cultivate, though you probably won’t find that on a map yet.

Board members had five names to consider Tuesday, with other options being the nearby street names: Beacon, Benchmark, Cultivate, and Paramount.

The groundbreaking ceremony will take place on Wednesday, April 1 at 3:30p.m.
