UC.#584619 AVALON, CA 90704 addressing them were discussed at length. During the discussion and audience participation, it became clear that modernization of the existing buildings was not what the community had hoped for. But the issue of constructing new facilities is dealt with from a sep- arate pocket of state funding, beginning with establishing eligi- bility based on projected growth of enrollment. Establishing eligi- bility is just the first step in the process. In the forty years Avalon School has operated, enrollment has grown from 450 in the first thirty, years, to 744 in 1999- 2000. It is reasonable to expect the growth will continue, given the planned new construction of the city. However, Avalon is but one school in the district, and the dis- trict but one of many in the state. It appears patience is required. Meanwhile, modernizing the existing facility will certainly improve the quality of life for teachers, staff, students and par- ents.
