On June 6, 2022, OUSD and CCM/MAAS broke ground on the Pablo Tac Elementary School campus (formally San Luis Rey Elementary School). The school was renamed to honor the indigenous scholar whose heritage & academic work to preserve the Luiseño language embodies the school's values.
In attendance were:
Dr. Stacy Begin, OUSD Board of Education President
Raquel Alvarez, OUSD Board of Education Vice President
Mike Blessing, OUSD Board of Education Clerk of the Board
Eleanor Evans, OUSD Board of Education Member
Eric Joyce, OUSD Board of Education Member
Dr. Julie A. Vitale, Superintendent
Dr. Todd McAteer, Associate Superintendent of Human Resources
Dr. Mercedes Lovie, Associate Superintendent of Educational Services
Dr. Carla Aranda, Pablo Tac Principal
Lori O’Keefe, President, MAAS Companies

We're excited to start this new chapter with Pablo Tac School of the Arts and continue providing our construction/program management services to the district.
