Measure L was passed in February of 2008, ensuring $175 million "to improve the overall quality and safety of the local elementary and middle schools."
Four years later, signs of how the school district is putting that money to work is all around us.
Staff members of the San Mateo-Foster City School District recently sent out an update on several projects taking place around the school district, and the progress being made:
- - Work is continuing on the modernization of the existing three (3) classroom wings and LGI which are scheduled to open when school starts again in August. (Anticipated project completion: April, 2013)
- - The new LGI building and administration building are substantially complete. The classroom work is ongoing with new electrical, data, plumbing and mechanical work currently being done. Sheetrock finishing has begun in one of the classroom buildings. (Anticipated completion: October, 2012)
- - Classrooms are substantially finished with flooring still to be completed. The library and administration buildings are receiving new electrical, data and HVAC ductwork. The sheetrock work is ongoing in the library and administration building. The installation of the exterior finish panels has started on the three new buildings. The district will be moving the entire school to their new classrooms this summer. (Anticipated completion: August, 2012)
- - Exterior stucco has been installed and the finish coat will be applied soon on the new 21,000-square-foot, ten-classroom and LGI building. Once completed, the building will be painted to match the existing campus. The interior sheetrock is also being done at this time; painting, cabinetry and other finishes will follow. The concrete retaining wall work continues for the new drop-off area. (Anticipated completion: August, 2012)
