On July 11, 2001 (Board Report No. 01-7-1C), the Board received a report containing a review of facilities projects. The project list, as noted in the July 11 report, resulted from several months of activities designed to assure that the District's physical resources will meet a high standard of instructional readiness. Included in these efforts were the following: (1) an extensive Facility Audit; (2) a Comprehensive Energy Analysis; and (3) a significant update of the Facility Master Plan. In addition to identification of the major renovation, repair and energy efficiency needs of the District, these activities highlighted the District's need for property improvements and acquisitions to meet educational program goals.

The facilities project list was finalized to reflect conclusions reached during the discussion at the Board meeting on July 11. That list is shown below, organized as follows: (1) repair and renovation (including energy efficiency projects), (2) technology and equipment, and (3) proposed Facility Master Plan projects. The District seeks Board approval of the list as a basis for General Obligation Bond projects. The cost of the projects total $246 million, of which $207 million would be funded through a General Obligation Bond and $39 million would be funded through local and State sources, in addition to interest revenue generated from the investment of Bond funds.
