Gavilan College's Coyote Valley site opens doors to first classesby Jan Janes on Jan 13, 2017
More than a decade in the planning, Gavilan College will offer classes for the first time at the newly constructed Coyote Valley campus beginning Spring 2017.
At the northern boundary of the college's district map, and after a groundbreaking ceremony last year, the newly constructed campus will welcome students by offering a range of classes.
Administration of justice classes and police academy training will relocate to the site. The Coyote Valley campus will become the hub for South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium program, providing all countywide peace officer training. Classrooms are equipped for liberal arts and sciences, career technical education and physical education classes.
The spring 2017 class offerings include administration of justice, communications, computer science, kinesiology and mathematics.
After a ceremonial groundbreaking, construction began at the Gavilan College
Coyote Valley site in January. The first two buildings were framed in June.
