Briarwood Elementary Master Plan

On November 9, 2023, the SCUSD Board of Trustees approved the Briarwood Phase 1-B projects.  Visit the Bond Department's Briarwood Elementary Modernization webpage for construction updates.

Briarwood Master Plan Phase 1-B Community Update Letter 12/5/23

Voter-approved general obligation bond Measure BB allocated bond funds to design and build improvements to the site, which may include a larger multipurpose with a kitchen and a stage, and improved parking and traffic flow on campus. In order to create a plan that encompasses all of Briarwood's assets, SCUSD is creating a phased master plan for the campus. 

A master plan is a dynamic long-term planning document that provides a visionary site plan to guide future expansion with enhanced student and community access to the sites.  The master plan construction will be arranged in phases of which only Phase 1 is funded.  

Areas Included in the Phase 1 Master Plan

Phase 1-A: Completed in Summer 2023

  • All-inclusive playgrounds
  • Perimeter security fencing

Phase 1-B: Targeted Completion in Fall 2026

  • Convert two wings into flex, TK, kindergarten, and preschool classrooms
  • Kindergarten playground and shade structure
  • Preschool shade structure
  • Metal PE shade structure
  • New drives, parking, and entry plaza
  • Accessibility, utilities, paving, fencing, and roofing improvements

Areas included in the Complete Master Plan

Currently, funding is only identified for Phase 1. The other improvements identified in the master plan will be completed as funding is secured for each phase. 

  • Multipurpose and kitchen
  • Field improvements
  • Classroom modernization
  • Replacement of portables with permanent buildings
  • Additional student support spaces
  • Makerspace
