Where did the school year go?  It’s hard to believe the year is over.  When we started the year we said that we were going to seek your feedback on a number of issues.  

From high school scheduling to school calendar to redistricting to school start times to facilities thousands of people provided input along the way.  Our committees did amazing work on these projects and your feedback was invaluable as they developed recommendations.

The result is a number of new things in place for next year to support our strategic plan and expand opportunities for students.  MOSAIC will open in the fall.  High school juniors and seniors have expanded early college opportunities.  High school students have expanded online/virtual opportunities and seniors have the opportunity to personalize experiences through MyPath.  Summer school opportunities are also expanding for all students.

We are also improving facilities for next year with funds from Prop R and Prop A.  Those projects include replacing keyless entry locks across the district; turf replacement at MHS; overspray of the MHS track; asphalt and striping across the district; replacing the floor of Gym A at OHS; some ceiling work at MHS; roof work at Beasley and Point; and a complete replacement of the HVAC system at Buerkle Middle School.  These, and other small projects, are budgeted at just over $4.1 million. 

There is a lot of work to be done in our buildings over the coming years.  HVAC and roofing projects are the big ticket items and thanks to Prop R and Prop A we have funding to do the work over time.  

The summer is a busy time as we wrap up one year and get ready for the next.  I hope you have a great summer and we look forward to the return of students in the fall.
