An Update on Roseville High’s Geometry In Construction Program

We’re happy to report that the first year of Roseville High School’s Geometry in Construction program that we first wrote about here, has come to a successful conclusion. The house has been built, inspected, is all up to code, and up for bid! Bids are being accepted up til 1 PM on September 4th. Here’s the info about the house and the program from the Property Spec Sheet:

The House that RHS Geometry Students Built

“The Roseville High School Geometry in Construction Program is the first of its kind in California. The program combines traditional College Preparatory Geometry with Construction Technology to create a contextual, “hands-on” learning approach that
provided RHS students with the relevance that is so often missing from traditional math classrooms. During the school year, the students apply their math while learning the entry level skills required building a 656 square foot 2BR/1BA house. The 2011-2012
house was 100% student built under the supervision and instruction from the GIC staff and an exceptional list of industry partners and trade organizations. The majority of the students were sophomores (15-16 years old) and over 30% of the students were nontraditional Industrial Technology students (female). The class provides life changing experiences for students who take these lessons with them not only into future math classes, but careers and beyond.

“The 2011-2012 RHS Geometry in Construction house is a CA Certified Factory Built Home. It can be legally moved and placed on most locations in California. The house will be sold by the Roseville Joint Union High School District through a closed bid
process “As-Is/Where-Is”, and the buyer assumes the responsibility to move and set the home and complete any site work needed to ensure occupancy. The proceeds from the sale of the home go directly back to the RHS/GIC program and help fund the 2012-1013 Geometry in Construction Class. Questions about the bidding process, to schedule a tour of the home, or for general questions regarding the RHS Geometry in Construction program, please contact Jeff Bailey:; or 916-782-3753 Ext 3804.”
