The Role of Facilities and Planning
The role of the Facilites and Planning Department is to assist the District in the planning, maintenance and construction of school facilites to meet the demand for a 21st Century, state-of-the-art learning platform. This is accomplished by designing and establishing a "Facilties Master Plan" that was adopted by the District. The Master Plan is the primary guide for the Facilities and Planning Department in carrying out the Department's duties at the fourth largest school district in Orange County that encompases 95 square miles.
Some examples of the Facilties and Planning Department's services to all schools in the District include the following:
- Developing and implementation of the Long Range Master Plan.
- Assisting with the District's State Funding Program.
- Review and approval of site acquisitions.
- Recommend architects for school projects.
- Liaison with State and local agencies.
- Property Management.
- Evaluation of financing alternatives.
- Repair of existing and new facilities.
- Oversight of Measure B, Bond Construction Program.
Measure B, School Improvement and Repair Bond Program
In March 2004 voters in the Saddleback Valley Unified School District passed Measure B, a $180 million School Improvement and Repair Bond.
The Facilities and Planning Department has the prime responsibility in carrying out the modernization, new construction and enhancements at every one of the 36 school sites in the District.
The District has spent $163,367,861 out of Measure B to date. There is approximately $16 million left in Measure B that is fully committed for other projects.
