Long Range Facilities Plan

  • One of the goals in the District's Comprehensive Plan is to "Establish a system that fully ensures the use of data to effectively justify the allocation and alignment of instructional and infrastructural priorities."  The first step in implementation of this goal occurred in the spring 2017, when the District put out a request for proposals to complete a comprehensive long range capital improvement planning process and to prepare a District Long Range Facilities Plan (LRFP) to include each District site.

    The last Long Range Facilities Plan for the District was completed 16 years ago.  

    Ten proposals were submitted and after careful consideration and evaluation, EI Associates was engaged by the District to prepare the plan.  The process will take approximately five months.  To view the schedule provided by EI, click here.

    In an effort to keep the community apprised and engaged we created this webpage in September and will be updating it as new information becomes available.  Please check back regularly!

    September 2019
    The Hoover Elementary Renovation Project, the District Administration Offices and College Park Tennis Courts were advertised for public bid at the beginning of August. Bids were received on Wednesday, September 4 and were followed by a Public Bid opening held at the Sutliff Family Auditorium. On Friday, September 6, at a joint meeting of the Buildings and Grounds and Budget and Finance/Personnel Committees, the decision was made to reject the bids due to total project costs exceeding estimated costs by approximately $3,000,000.  This affects decisions related to all future projects. The Board and District Administration have begun working to re-prioritize infrastructure needs at Hoover Elementary and the Middle School/High School to align with the Board approved financing plan.

    Middle/High School renovation update from the Superintendent:

    The plans for this renovation were carefully developed by SiteLogic, our construction management partner, and the District team. We are able to assure that the demolition work that is currently underway will not create any hazardous conditions. Additionally, I thought it would be helpful to provide you with the following information:

    • Almost all asbestos has been abated in the Middle/High School building through previous renovation work. The District has an asbestos report on file as documentation. SiteLogic is aware of all known asbestos in the building, which is very minor and will not be disturbed. SiteLogic also has staff on-site who can recognize any potential asbestos containing material that might be hidden and the means to test and abate in the event something is found.
    • SiteLogic has very recent baseline air quality testing (from the week prior to renovations starting) and we plan to continue to monitor the air quality by conducting monthly testing through the end of the school year.
    • The fire marshal has been inspecting the condition of the building periodically to ensure that it is safe. He will continue to do so as the project evolves.
    • The odor that has been noticed is coming from the adhesive that was used to install the original tile floor, which is removed by the grinding process.  Moving forward, we have asked the contractors to finish the grinding process completely prior to moving onto the next classroom.
    • Contractors have been cleaning up after every shift to ensure that the building is left in a clean condition for students and teachers every day. Because of the grinding of floors, we may have some residual dust in certain areas. I will bring this to SiteLogic's attention so that they can address the issue.
