Project Update

Errol Hassel Elementary School received additional security measures, thanks to the 2014 Bond. The District worked throughout the summer to remove room dividers and install framed walls with lockable doors to allow staff to secure their own rooms.

At Errol Hassel, this resulted in framing eight classrooms and a conference space. Construction crews also installed a new drinking fountain/bottle filler that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Other improvements include replacing a hallway carpet and a new exit hallway from the library.

Errol Hassel Elementary School can say “hello” to an upgraded heating, ventilation and air conditioning system this school year in upgraded sections of the building. The units are up and running, and the District will fine tune the system through mid-September.

Due to the ongoing maintenance, students and staff may experience some mild discomfort in temperatures. The District will modify as needed.

Learning Technology

The 2014 Bond Program provided Chromebooks and iPads for students at all schools and allowed for two rounds of replacements. Students need to be able to access information to work in collaboration with teachers, peers and experts on what and how they learn. Printed textbooks contain static information. Digital content is engaging and efficient, available at any time and steeped in authentic problem solving. Access to high quality, dynamic information for all students will help close the equity gap. These devices have been essential during Comprehensive Distance Learning.

Final Cost: $54,000,000
Schedule: Two rounds of replacements

District-Wide Interior Classroom Locks

At its June 2019 Business Meeting, the School Board approved a $2-million allocation from the program reserve to fund the Interior Classroom Locks project. The project scope was not originally recognized as part of the 2014 Bond Program's District-Wide Security Upgrades project but became a priority due to the critical need for areas of refuge. 
 
The Interior Classroom Locks project greatly enhances school security and student safety by replacing all classroom locks across the District with push/turn hardware. The new hardware is easily lockable from inside a room, allowing anyone to quickly secure a room without having to use a key. 
 
The project is currently ahead of schedule and under budget. Once all the classroom locks are replaced, any remaining budget will be used to secure additional areas of refuge across the District. 

Schedule: 09/2018 - TBD (completion date varies site-by-site)

District-Wide Security Upgrades

 

As part of the 2014 Bond, we're making district-wide security retrofits in existing buildings by installing remote entry-door unlatching, keyless entry and visitor-routing controls as determined by a site-by-site needs analysis. We are installing security cameras at all schools and perimeter fencing at high schools.


Schedule: 08/2015 - TBD

District-Wide Unified Communication System

This large project began in the summer of 2015 and affected every building in the District.  The new system greatly improves communication and safety with a built-in emergency notification application. 

The application notifies key personnel of any security or safety concerns with the touch of a button. Color-coded alerts can be sent to individuals or an entire building, both over the intercom and through pop-up alerts on workstations. If a 911 call is made from a particular classroom, emergency responders are automatically able to see where the call was placed.

In addition, this project includes adding infrastructure to support outlets and data racks in all classrooms, including portables.

Final Cost: $5,282,000
Schedule: 03/2014 - 09/2017
