Renovating & Refreshing Existing Facilities

  • BOFC Logo The second priority of the BOFC HOUSE Building Our Future Community plan includes renovating and refreshing every District 49 school and building that houses an educational program. Each decade, $20 million will be available for this portion of the project.
     
    Refresh / Refurbish
      • Replace 10-15 year assets such as chairs, desks, carpets, etc.
    Modernize / Optimize
      • LED lighting, IT infrastructure, etc.
    Physical Aesthetics / Functional Improvements
      • Property entrances and exits, grounds, building entry ways, parking lots, and other projects that enhance the look and feel of the campus.
    The financial instrument in priority 2 of the plan makes a $20 million investment available each decade.  The 10-year cycle is important.  It allows us to extend the useful life of our existing facilities and refresh the warm and inviting learning spaces for our students once every ten years.
     
    Priority 2 Fund Allotment
    Every school is different and as of today, not necessarily on equal footing.  Older school buildings need more upgrades than newer buildings.  Projects in big schools cost more than the same project in a smaller school.  The allocation of dollars for this first round of funding is based off the square footage of the building and then increased or decreased six percent for each year different from the average year built.  In District 49, the average year built for our facilities is the year 2000.

    SCHS Scorecard Thumb Click the school acronym links in the above chart for facility performance scorecards (pdf) on each building and campus.  Scorecards include information about location, capacity and enrollment, building use, energy efficiency and the health ratings of different building systems.  You can also pick up facility performance scorecards at the individual school buildings.
     
    In 2016, district departments, zone leaders and school leaders went through a process to collaboratively identify and prioritize the needs of each facility against the resources available through priority 2.


    PHASE I PROJECTS (COMPLETED, UNDERWAY, OR SCHEDULED)


    Projects on this list have been identified as a collaborative effort between school leaders and the district facilities and operations team.  School accountability committees and the mill levy oversight committee (a sub committee of the district accountability and advisory committee) have endorsed the projects as meeting ballot language specifications.  Mill levy oversight committee work can be tracked at D49.org/MLO-Oversight.

    Many of the projects on the list are underway and scheduled to be completed prior to students returning.  Some projects are still in bidding and design phases and are scheduled for work to be done during major breaks in the school year.  At some campuses, additional projects are planned from those that are listed here.  Those projects are not scheduled to move forward until the budget of current projects can be verified.

    Major addition and renovation projects at the three large high schools and the construction of two new elementary schools are not included in this list.

    MLO Oversight Committee
    The MLO Oversight Committee evaluates priority two projects. The approval of 3B makes $20 million available each decade for improvement at all existing schools across the district.

    In the informational packets for each school that are available in the table, you'll notice projects that are highlighted in green, blue or orange. These colors help indicate the status level of the project from the MLO Oversight Committee.
    • Blue highlighted projects indicate an original submission from the school, the results of a collaborative effort between building staff and the district planning and operation departments. These items have not yet begun the MLO Oversight Committee approval process.
    • Items highlighted in green have received support from the School Accountability Committee and the MLO oversight committee. In the first round of priority two work, only 60-percent of allocated money to each school is being spent as a budget control measure. The projects that aren't highlighted are scheduled to be completed at a later time as remaining priority two funds for each campus are available.
    • Items highlighted in orange are still in the collaborative process between school leaders, School Accountability Committees and the MLO Oversight Committee. With time, projects that are highlighted in orange will either update to green when they have completed the review process and received support. If not supported, the projects will be removed from the list.
    Project pricing in the lists are estimates. The district operations and planning teams will receive bulk bids for similar projects at multiple campus to bring individual project costs down below the listed estimates. Allocating the first 60-percent of available funds for priority two projects and getting bulk pricing will make more money available for the other projects on the lists.

    Items in the lists that are not highlighted have been endorsed by School Accountability Committees and the MLO Oversight Committee, but fall below the current 60-percent budgeting threshold mentioned above. These projects will be completed at a later date as additional funds are dispersed.
