New start date for ReNEW SciTech Academy due to construction delays

July 19, 2017 -- Due to delays in construction at the ReNEW SciTech Academy (STA) campus, the first day of the 2017-­2018 school year is now set for Monday, August 7. Classes at all other PK-8 campuses in the ReNEW Schools network will begin as scheduled on Tuesday, August 1.

The refurbishment work at the STA facility, located at 820 Jackson Ave., has included numerous updates and improvements to the school building.

“This has been an important renovation project for the ReNEW SciTech campus,” said Kevin Guitterrez, CEO of ReNEW Schools. “Crews have made tremendous progress and the work is nearly complete. We want to ensure the building is ready for students to return on day one, and we're looking forward to welcoming them back to a significantly-improved facility on August 7.”
