This special website presentation discusses funding, Board of Trustees priorities, where we have been with the project and where we are going.
Modernization plans are based on the MUSD 2014 Facility Master Plan, which identified approximately 600 million dollars-worth of need. The Measure G bond, however, is only 159 million dollars. Thus, to fit the budget, modernizations are primarily focused on four categories: Health and Safety, Major and Deferred Maintenance, Modernization and Upgrades, and Code Compliance.
Budgets for each site’s modernization are being established on how each site’s needs fit those categories.
Site Selection Process
The selection process had three necessary variables:
- Modernization Eligibility based on OPSC standards
- Elementary vs. Secondary School
- Age of Site
Selected from these three factors were the "Worst First". These sites had the most modernization needs, including safety concerns, facilities not up to code, deferred maintenance, and general renovations.
The first Phase Two schools are:
- Neil Hafley Elementary
- Nile Garden Elementary
- Manteca High School
- East Union High School
