The Governing Board of the Cabrillo Unified School District (CUSD) approved a comprehensive Facility Master Plan that describes the facility related needs of the District’s schools and prioritizes projects for inclusion in the Measure S Facility Bond Program.
Measure S was approved by the voters living within the Cabrillo Unified School District attendance area in June 2012. The measure provides an eventual $81 million in bond funds to improve the District’s facilities, increase energy efficiency, and bring technology into the hands of students.
A Facility Bond Steering Committee, comprised of private citizens representing the Coastside community, worked directly with architects who produced the plan and provided direction throughout the planning process.
The result is a document that is both forward thinking and addresses repairs and modernization of existing buildings, stated CUSD superintendent Tony Roehrick in a prepared press release.
Measure S projects identified within the plan include several priority projects at each school site.
The Measure S projects listed in the new Facility Master Plan includes:
• fire and intrusion alarm systems and the installation of Columbine locks for classroom doors. This hardware allows teachers to lock their classroom doors from inside their classrooms, providing greater safety for students and adults.
• the installation of several track and field event structures at Half Moon Bay High School such as shot-put and discuss competition areas. These additions will provide a full track and field facility and allow the high school to host home events.
• the modernization of the three Coastside elementary schools. Design planning for Alvin S. Hatch Elementary School will begin this fall. It is anticipated work will begin in the summer of 2015.
