Measure X Update, October 16, 2019
On Tuesday, October 15th, Alan Chambers of Eagle Architects, our district architect , came to our schools with representatives of School Works, a company that specializes in facility assessments.The purpose of the visit was to conduct an in-depth assessment of our facilities as a first step in the creation of our master plan for bond projects.
All areas of our school sites, with a focus on classrooms and cafeterias, and our maintenance and operations facilities, were evaluated. The resultant assessment report/master plan will be created and presented to the governing board at the December 18th meeting. Pending approval of the plan by the trustees, a timeline for the projects will be created and work will commence, with minimizing impact to the kids during the projects as a key imperative.
Please check back for updates.
Bond Oversight Committee Opening is Available All general obligation school bonds require a Citizen’s Oversight Committee. The purpose of the committee as defined in the CA Education Code – “To inform the public concerning expenditure of bond revenues.” The members of the committee will meet periodically with district leadership and bond related personnel to stay informed as to plans and progress as we move forward with bond projects. We are seeking a committee member who is also a current member of a Taxpayer’s Organization, one of the criteria for a member required by the state. If you have an interest in participating in this capacity, or have additional questions, please contact Lloyd Webb, Superintendent, at 530 895-4675 x227.
