Local Funding to Support District Modernization

Manteca Unified is thrilled to share the progress on East Union High School's new two-story building!

This month, Lancers had a special opportunity to be a part of history by signing the final beam needed for the new campus addition that will add 31 new classrooms.

At Manteca Unified, we understand the importance of modernizing our schools to meet the needs of today's and tomorrow's learners. By utilizing local tax dollars wisely, we've been able to expand and improve existing facilities while being fiscally responsible.

The construction of two-story buildings at Manteca High and East Union High is just one example of how we're investing in the future.
