Collective Commitment #5
Managing quality facilities that enhance our students’ learning experience and amplify our staff’s ability to deliver a high-quality curriculum.
Complete Prop L and current projects.
- Continue close observation of construction activities, schedules, phasing, procurement, etc.
- Ongoing dialogue with the business office in observed trends with change orders, delivery strategies, and staffing on-site.

Update the district’s Master Plan.
