Groundbreaking for new Special Education School in Camarillo

VCOE Revised Sketch Up SCENE 5 9-21-11.jpg

Media coverage is invited as the Ventura County Office of Education breaks ground on a new special education school in Camarillo. The 29,944-square-foot, two-story building will become the new, permanent home of Triton Academy, which serves students with autism in third through twelfth grades. The new school will be located next to the VCOE Conference and Educational Services Center on Adolfo Road.

WHAT: Groundbreaking for new VCOE special education school

WHEN: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.

WHERE: 5100 Adolfo Rd., Camarillo, CA 93012 (park on the east side of the building)

Triton Academy is moving out of its longtime campus on Temple Ave. in Camarillo, which is owned by the Pleasant Valley School District. Beginning this summer, Triton Academy will operate out of temporary facilities near the Camarillo Airport. The school will move to the new building on Adolfo Rd. once it’s complete, which is expected to be sometime during the 2019-2020 school year.

The $15 million in funding for the new building is coming from Proposition 51, a statewide school facilities bond measure that voters approved in November of 2016. The new school will be built by Oxnard-based Viola Constructors and it was designed by DC Architects. Architectural renderings of the new building are attached and additional information about Triton Academy is available at
