Facility Master Plan - GO Bond Implementation

Facilities Master Plan - General Obligation Bond Implementation

In order to meet the short and-long-term needs of more than 4,000 students within the Placer Union High School District, we developed a Facility Master Plan (FMP) in 2016 that outlines project lists and priorities as the basis for a potential General Obligation (GO) bond.

It is important to understand that a GO bond program entails a multi-year process that is reliant on phased access to funds. Additionally, the process to complete the Facility Master Plan included several meetings with stakeholders at many levels – community-wide meetings, staff, parents and students.

Fundamentally, the community and district established the priorities below to help guide the process:

1) Address capacity – by providing permanent learning environments.

2) Replace aging portable classrooms – Rather than renovate, replace aging portables with permanent classrooms.

3) Improve aging infrastructure – Update old underground utilities, aging HVAC and other needed infrastructure, as well as maintain a safe and secure campus.

4) STE(A)M – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math focus, in tandem with the Arts – Upgrade technology to accommodate and increase student learning and collaboration.

5) Career Technical Education (CTE) – Increase flexible spaces designed to support project-based learning across all academic disciplines.

6) Student Union/Learning Commons – Create a student-centered space for research, group study, and production to encourage student and teacher collaboration.

Project Summary

This project summary was developed with input from the FMP process, and was broken into three categories of “priority,” “go back” and “future”:

Priorities:

  • Site infrastructure

  • New classroom building (s)

  • Building 400 renovation

  • Building 100 HVAC

Go Backs:

  • Building 100 renovation

Future:

  • Site athletics & stadium upgrades

  • Building 200 upgrades (as needed)

New Construction/ Modernization Funding:

As of July 2017, the district has been in line with the Office of Public School Construction (OPSC) to receive $14.24M in new construction monies for three new classroom buildings at Del Oro. We expect to receive this funding by Oct. 2020.

Prop 51:

$40M will ultimately mean $55M to the district when the state releases an additional $15 million in Prop 51 funds to the district. New classroom buildings must be the priority in order to be eligible for this additional funding.
