Your 2016 Bond Money At Work

Box office side of parking lot 

One of the first projects from the 2016 bond that's turning dirt...actually in this case it's turning asphalt, is the Rutledge Stadium parking lot.  If you've been to any event at the stadium over recent years and driven across the parking lot, you know it's needed work.  Well, it's underway with some of the work preps already finished on the box office side, while the end zone area has been excavated with the old surface being ripped up and will be resurfaced next.  The box office side at least is scheduled to be finished by the beginning of football season with the end zone following soon after that.  The last part will be the lot in front of the gym. Each one will feature a beefed up composition and structure. 
We'll soon bring you more information and photos during the summer of other bond projects that are underway.  Be looking for updates periodically showing progress of the work. It'll give you an idea of what's going on.

We will honor the confidence voters have placed in this bond by using these resources as effectively and as transparent as possible for the good of the students.

2016 Bond Update: Dust Flying Soon

2016 Bond Projects Update 12/2016

New Elementary School 1 – Escondido North Site
In our effort to keep the community informed, here are the updates on where we are with the 2016 Bond Projects. The Board of Trustees approved Stantec Architect Firm for the Escondido North Elementary site school design at the October 2016 board meeting. To receive feedback from parents and staff members, the principals at Rolling Meadows Elementary and Copperfield Elementary schools posted a survey to solicit community input. We have completed negotiations with the architect firm to change the design in areas that need enhancements based on faculty and community input. 

Kirby Middle School, Kitty Hawk Middle School, & New Elementary School 2 – Wortham Oaks Site 
Architectural rankings for selection of the Kirby and Kitty Hawk Middle School renovations and the building of Wortham Oaks elementary site have been completed and will be presented to the Board of Trustees for review and approval at the upcoming board meeting on December 15, 2016. After the selected architect firm has completed a design for both projects, construction companies can submit proposals. We will submit a ranking selection of those companies to the Board of Trustees for approval and construction will begin afterwards. The estimated completion of construction for the Escondido North and Wortham Oaks elementary sites will be August 2018 - December 2018. The anticipated completion dates for Kirby Middle and Kitty Hawk Middle School renovations will be in December 2019 - May 2020.

Elolf Elementary School, Hopkins Elementary School, Judson High School - Agriculture Complex, & Woodlake Hills Middle  School
Construction phases are just about to launch for the security vestibules located at Elolf Elementary and Hopkins Elementary schools over the winter break. In addition, the bidding process has started for the minor renovations planned to the existing Judson High School Agriculture Complex. Chiller replacements at Elolf & Woodlake Hills Middle School were awarded to T.D. Industries and installations are scheduled for Spring Break.

Finally, a lighting retro-fit-proposal has been received for the replacement of the existing corridor lighting fixtures at Wagner High School, and coordination with the procurement department is currently underway.
