CASTAIC – Moving a step closer to adding another school to the crowded district, the Castaic school board signed a letter of intent to purchase a parcel of land in Hasley Canyon.

The decision to move forward on the 11.5-acre parcel, which officials have valued at $3.7 million, comes after many meetings to choose a new campus site.

The district formed a community committee earlier this year to review four possible sites – including the Hasley Canyon location.

A decision to go with the current property, owned and developed by Greystone Homes, was a result of numerous site committee meetings.

Gingrich added that the district would have to get in line for state funds for the project.
