Bond Projects

It is only through continued community support of the bond program that the district is able to make improvements and build new schools. Thank you for enabling us to create a better learning environment for our students and staff.

2018 Bond Projects

The 2018 Capital Bond will add much needed capacity, easing overcrowding district wide, while also addressing equity issues. The bond provides for safety and security updates at all schools; a new K-5 school on Maltby Road; a new 30-classroom flexible use building on the Skyview Middle/Canyon Creek Elementary campus; and a Concert Hall at Inglemoor High School to support both instruction and production. Building systems upgrades, outdoor instructional areas and athletics spaces will also be included.

2014 Bond Projects

Community passage of the February, 2014 bond has enabled the District to address critical capacity needs impacting our students and staff.  The bond has provided funding for grade reconfiguration to a K-5, 6-8 and 9-12 model, allowing more student access to specialized instructional resources.

Building Modernization Projects - $8.8 million

The Building Modernization Program (BMP) extends the useful life of existing facilities by updating and/or modernizing one or more building system components such as roofing, heating, and ventilation systems (HVAC), building environmental controls, flooring or other building elements. The BMP focuses on schools whose general structural condition is good and whose footprint meets current instructional program needs. Sites with multiple building components being replaced require broader planning to ensure resources are leveraged and staged in the most effective way.
 
In addition to extending the life of our facilities, the BMP also offers an opportunity to increase the energy effectiveness of the buildings in the District and reduce their carbon footprint.

Small Works and Code Related Projects - $7 million

Due to the dynamic nature of code requirements, changing student body and dynamic instructional needs, reserves for small projects are set up in each bond to fund projects for the upcoming four year period. Typically, these projects are under $250K.

Projects included the following:

  • Building modifications to meet instructional needs driven by program relocation
  • Portable modifications, upgrades and relocation
  • Changes in circulation, fire alarm, fire hydrant, and electrical code requirements
  • A structural upgrade at one middle school

While difficult to project needs and timing, it appears that the funding requested in the 2014 bond will meet the needs of the District until the next bond in 2018.

Building Modernization Program - $19.8 million

The Building Modernization Program (BMP) extends the useful life of existing facilities by updating and/or modernizing one or more building system components such as roofing, heating, and ventilation systems (HVAC), building environmental controls, flooring or other building elements. The BMP focuses on schools whose general structural condition is good and whose footprint meets current instructional program needs. Sites with multiple building components being replaced require broader planning to ensure resources are leveraged and staged in the most effective way.
 
The District was able to supplement the $19.8 million in this category with $11 million in grants and additional District capital funds, which resulted in district wide utility meter upgrades with energy load management software, weatherization, as well as glazing replacements (window replacements to double pane windows) at Lockwood, East Ridge, Wellington and Bear Creek.

In addition to extending the life of our facilities, the BMP also offers an opportunity to increase the energy effectiveness of the buildings in the District and reduce their carbon footprint.

Projects addressed:

  • Freezer upgrades and replacements

Land Acquisition & Planning - $2.5 million

Approximately 17 acres of land adjacent to Fernwood Elementary was purchased for just over $2 million. The land is located in an area that has experienced high growth in the last several years and that trend is projected to continue. This land, in addition to a piece of property already owned by the District adjacent to Fernwood Elementary, will serve as the site for the new high school.  
 
Further, this funding provides the architectural and consulting services necessary to design the facilities to support the Board of Directors October 23, 2012 decision to propose a new high school to the voters. Funds will also support district-wide grade reconfiguration to a K-5 elementary, 6-8 middle school and 9-12 high school model.
