    Canalino Elementary School / Carpinteria Family School

    The conceptual plan for Canalino / CFS provides a unique identity for both schools and provides the appropriate separation between “little kid” and “big kid” areas. Restrooms campus-wide will be modernized. Other improvements include upgrading existing classrooms, remodeling the kitchen, upgrading finishes in the MPR and addressing the special education patio area. After school programs will now have a permanent home. New construction on site includes a new learning center and classrooms.
