The Board approved the Middle and Elementary School Specifications at the December 11, 2011 board meeting and specifications are now posted on the District website. Educational specifications serve as the link between the educational program and the school facilities. They translate the physical requirements of the educational activity to be conducted so that the architectural concepts and solution support the stated educational program. In 1994 the California Department of Education was directed by the Legislature to formalize regulations governing standards for the design and construction of new school facilities. Included with those standards are requirements for the submittal of educational specifications. Those requirements are delineated in Ed Code section 39101(c) and also listed in the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, section 14030 (a).
These documents represent numerous hours of input from teachers, administrators and other staff.
The Citizen Oversight committee is scheduled to meet on February 15th. At this meeting they will review the audit of the Bond funds and receive an update on the progress of all construction projects.
