The district currently operates two schools, Anna Yates Elementary school and Emery Secondary School. Both of these schools' sites are now closed. The schools moved to a shared campus in August 2016 at the newly constructed state-of-the-art facility called Emeryville Center for Community Life.[citation needed] Also sharing the ECCL site are the Emery Unified School District Office, a community health center, and city of Emeryville community and recreation spaces.
