A five-story building was constructed on Stanford Avenue, an edifice which was – at the time – the tallest building in the city.

Now, the GGUSD district office is undergoing a major renovation which will bring the facility into the 21st century.

According to Abby Broyles, district public information officer, the work to be done includes fire, life and safety upgrades;  renovations to bring it into compliance with the Americans With Disability Act, new painting and flooring, window and roof replacement, abatement of hazardous materials, ductwork and air conditioning units.

While that’s being done, the building is closed to the public. Operations are dispersed to the adjacent annex and other district facilities. It’s all financed by federal grant money and completion is expected by November, which will be the 59th anniversary of the election in which voters authorized the unification of the three districts into one.

The GGUSD serves most of Garden Grove as well as parts of Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, Stanton and Westminster.
