Draft Historic Resources Reports
The Board of Education adopted the Historic Resources Policy (BP & AR 7113) at their February 9, 2021 meeting. They directed the review of the facility by historic resources consultants to determine potential historic resources. Attached are the historic resources reports prepared by the Architectural Resources Group and Historical Resources Group. These reports identify facilities that would potentially be considered eligible for listing under the National Register of Historic Places, California Register of Historical Resources, or City of Santa Monica Designated Historic Resources.

SMMUSD Requests Community Input about Potential Historic Resources on District Campuses
As directed by Board Policy 7133, the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District will hold a series of online community meetings on June 21 and June 22nd to develop the Historic Resource Inventories for its elementary and middle schools. This is an opportunity for the community to provide input to the District’s Historic Resources Consultants to help determine whether a building or property would qualify as a historic resource. The consultants will review the process and methodology.
At this meeting, our consultants will ask for the community’s input and comments on the buildings, artwork and other features of the campus that might be a historical resource. This is your opportunity to guide the investigation. The District’s Historic Resources Consultants will review the process and methodology that goes into determining whether a building or property will qualify as a historic resource.
Later this year, the recommendations from the Historic Resources Consultants will be made public for review and another round of community meetings will be scheduled to receive feedback on the Historical Resource Inventory reports. Following revisions, the Board of Education will receive and adopt the reports.
The meetings are part of the district’s campus assessment process as it continues to align its instructional programs and environments to the way students learn and the jobs of the 21st century and to make those environments adaptable for future changes in coming decades.
