Located outside of Oakland, West Contra Costa USD serves the cities of El Cerrito, San Pablo, Pinole, Richmond, and Hercules. The district was established in 1965 and supports 56 K-12 facilities, seven high schools, and more than 27,000 students.

The transformation project is in conjunction with a $575 million voter-approved bond package in March 2020. West Contra Costa USD will utilize the majority of the bond package to re-envision both Richmond and Kennedy High School campuses and advance its vision of equity in developing schools to become a community resource. This integrated design for Richmond High School includes new construction, CTE integration, equity-based planning and community outreach, and 21st-century learning environments organized by academic academies.
