How did we get here?
Stanfield School District, like other regional districts in the past few years, began to evaluate the security of our school buildings. In 2016, the district hosted a building tour and solicited community input. In 2017, district administrators began working with Wenaha Group to plan and execute a Needs Assessment of our district buildings. Upon completion of the Needs Assessment, DesignWest Architect firm was hired to begin the Long- Range Planning with input gathered from our Needs Assessment.
What did the Needs Assessment conclude?
It identified approximately $1.3 million in potential improvements for the Elementary School, including secure vestibule entryway, flooring replacement in hallways and parking/parent drop-off safety improvements.
The Needs Assessment also concluded that the Secondary School could benefit from modernization. The assessment identified $4.6 million to include a secure vestibule entryway, roofing, ADA upgrades, plumbing, electrical (with security components), fixed furnishings/equipment and site work.
What does this all mean now? Long-Range Facility Recommendations:
Secure entry & office remodel with better visibility
Parking and parent drop-off reconfiguration to increase vehicle capacity and student safety
Replace flooring (currently carpet) but explore long-lasting options like polished concrete
NEW Middle School with MUSIC ROOM, FOUR CLASSROOMS, RESTROOMS, STORAGE, GYMNASIUM AND CORRIDOR CONNECTION TO EXISTING BUILDING
Expanded metal and wood shop space for additional CTE (Career and Technical Education) programs and/or re-purposing currently underutilized space
Gym air conditioning
Remodel of Administrative Offices so they function well in conjunction with the front entry
Replacement of all exterior doors and some interior doors
Kitchen update with new ovens, new freezers and new flooring
Addition of natural light features in classrooms
Air exhausts in restrooms
Addition of sinks in science classroom for safety
Upgrade of surveillance system
Removal of lead plumbing
What are costs of the Bond?
