The Charge of the Facility Master Plan
On May 11, 2022 the Board of Education put forward the following charge to the Faculties Master Plan team: To identify, plan, and complete Measure LL Facility Bond improvement projects that align to the ballot language and best address the equitable needs of students. 

The Challenges
1) To maximize the impact of the Measure LL Facility Bond funds given chronic underfunding of facility maintenance and repair by the state; 2) the expansive need for facility repair and improvement districtwide; 3) the significant difference between the original construction costs estimates created by staff and professional Rough Order of Magnitude cost proposals provided by professional architects and contractors; 4) the current market conditions of dramatic cost escalation. 

The Opportunity
To analyze the existing state of all facilities through a long range facility master plan process, create a facility management system (including policies and procedures), increase staffing capacity to address facility needs, identify multiple funding sources, accelerate access to Measure LL Facility Bond funds, and leverage future redevelopment funding now through certificates of participation.
