Approved Phase One Projects

After Measure G passed, the Bond Implementation Committee (BIC), a Superintendent’s Advisory Committee formed in December of 2016, began its work. The committee was comprised of over 40 members representing all schools, departments, internal groups, as well as community members that support education. Members included teachers, staff, students, parents, school site and District administration, Board members, representatives from local agencies/partners, as well as members of the community.

The committee was given three responsibilities during the process – 1) To advise the Superintendent on the prioritization of projects to help him make a recommendation to the Board, 2) To act as liaisons to sites and the local community for the work being performed, and 3) To act in the best interest of the District as a whole, not just for the member’s site or constituency group.  Using the Measure G Bond language and the Facilities Master Plan to guide the process, the committee met several times, prioritized the projects by need and value, and made their recommendation to the Superintendent for Phase 1 projects (first $105 million) and Phase 2 projects (remaining $100 million scheduled after 2021).  District staff then used the feedback from the committee, as well as discussions with their architects and construction management firm, to complete the final proposed list. In May and August of 2017, the Board of Trustees approved the initial list of 15 projects covered in Phase 1.

Throughout the Fall of 2018, the Board of Trustees at regular Board meetings received presentations from District staff on cost escalation issues facing Measure G project prioritization.  Two years of devastating fires in California, steel tariffs and $250 billion of construction bond issuance throughout the state put tremendous pressure and competition on construction costs.  In order to maximize project priorities and minimize project escalation, the Board voted to delay work on some Phase 1 projects to the next funding cycle in 2021/2022. These projects include the SMHS 2nd Turf Field, Lynwood Remodel, Sinaloa Gym, and a percentage of the allocation for the Classroom Technology Tool Kit, Flexible Furniture, and IT Infrastructure.**  The Board also, after much community discussion, voted to insert into Phase 1 HVAC upgrades at Lynwood ES, Olive ES and Loma Verde ES, as well as the construction of an Athletic Field Complex at Novato HS.

Over several meetings in the Spring and Fall of 2019, the Board reviewed Phase 2 allocation methodologies and recommendations in order to begin the project prioritization process for remaining Bond projects.  At the December 3, 2019 and January 14, 2020 meetings, the Board allocated the remaining Measure G funds into categorical designations. District standards and a prioritized project list for those categories will be developed throughout 2020, and recommendations made to the Superintendent for Phase 2 projects for presentation to the Board for approval.

Originally an element of the approved Lynwood Campus Remodel project, the classroom air-conditioning portion was redirected for completion in 2019. This project will replace existing gas furnaces with energy-efficient electric heat-pumps and exterior condensing units. This new system provides both heating and much needed cooling capacity in each classroom. The project also includes increased electrical capacity in new conduit runs for the new heat pump units. The new HVAC system is 100% compatible with the District’s existing Pelican climate control wireless thermostat technology, avoiding additional project costs. HVAC project slated to be completed over the summer 2019.

Construct a new, full-size multi-sport turf field for PE, sports practices and games. This project has been deferred and is on hold pending completion of the Stadium Lights project at San Marin.  Need for the field will be reevaluated after the increase of Stadium field usage is determined by the addition of lights.

This project installs a new stadium public address/sound system, providing a dramatic improvement over the existing stadium PA system. Project was done in conjunction with the Stadium Lights Project in order to provide a costs savings for work required for the PA system (Any expenses going toward the Stadium Lights project are not paid for by Measure G).
