Five Oaks/Rachel Carson Renovation & Expansion

Budget: $28,001,000
Schedule: 06/2018 - 12/2020

Five Oaks Middle School underwent an extensive renovation as part of the 2014 Bond Program. The remodel was conducted in phases; the first phase began in the summer of 2017 and the last phase concluded in winter 2020.

​The renovation greatly improved classroom layout and increased natural light. It also included new science labs and support areas, a remodeled library,  restrooms and expansion of teaching areas. The administrative area was relocated to provide a more secure front entrance, and new access control was added​ throughout the building.​​

  • Summer 2017: Removal of corridor carpeting, polishing of concrete floors
  • Summer 2018: Removal of portables, renovation of upper gym and other existing spaces into 9 classrooms, band room remodel with addition of sound doors, and AV enhancements including projector, screen, speakers, Apple TV and voice amplification 
  • Spring 2019: Administration area, 10 classrooms, 1 resource classroom, conference room and new restrooms
  • Summer 2019: 13 classrooms, 4 science labs, 2 science prep rooms, computer lab, teacher planning and conference rooms, media center, new restrooms, sprinklers in gyms and access control system
  • Winter 2020: Front entrance vestibule, landscaping, 5 classrooms, resource classroom, teacher planning area and restrooms
  • Summer 2020: Counseling area, 4 Special Education classrooms, 2 small classrooms, life skills kitchen, restrooms, HVAC controls, remaining site work and other miscellaneous upgrades

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)
Status: In progress

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 affects 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 has been 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
Status: Complete
