  • Adelante August Update

    Posted by Neta Assaf on 8/30/2018 6:00:00 AM

    Another summer full of fun (and work) has come and gone at Adelante Spanish Immersion School! Welcome back, we hope your school year is successful. The Bond Team is propelling the Measure T Bond Measure’s vision into reality. The design and construction process is being carefully guided, with everyone focused on making the Redwood City School District (RCSD) the best place for learning and exploration it can be.


    This summer Adelante has been full of activity:


    • A Construction-Related Testing and Inspection Agreement with Ninyo and Moore was approved by the Board.
    • The Board has approved a Construction Management Consultant Agreement with Kitchell Corporation for Adelante.
    • The team received the Construction Document set for Adelante, which produced drawings with great detail that will be used during construction.
    • The Adelante Construction Documents have been submitted to the Division of the State Architect for review.


    The next steps for Adelante Spanish Immersion include review and sign off from DSA, followed by the bidding and construction phases.


    The Bond Team is happy to share that the timeline for completing all RCSD school site projects has been shortened to five years instead of the previously expected seven. Construction on some District sites is expected to begin as early as the start of 2019.


    For further information or inquiry, please contact Don Dias.

  • Adelante Conceptual Design

    Posted by Ty Specht on 8/14/2017 7:10:00 PM

    There are multiple phases of design that your school will progress through over the next several month. Those phases include:


    • Conceptual Design
    • Schematic Design
    • Design Development
    • Construction Documents


    A critical part of every project is the budget and ensuring that the design maximizes the budget. The architect of your school was provided a set budget and a design objective based on the goals of the Master Facility Plan and the board approved Gap Analysis finding. The attached document reflects the architect’s conceptual design for your site. Conceptual designs can be considered the first drawings that outline desires and opportunities. The level of detail is limited in this phase. The next phase, schematic development, will show addition details like wall locations, doors, and windows.  


    The Bond Program Team is in constant contact with the school principal to confirm design developments through the entire process for feedback and design confirmation.

  • Adelante Neighborhood Meeting

    The Redwood City School District Measure T Bond Team invited the local community to attend an informational session about their school on one of three days in April or May of 2017. The content of the meeting included a welcome message from Dr. John Baker, Superintendent, a Measure T overall Bond Update, as well as school specific updates in a breakout session.


    Attached is a copy of the presentation provided at the Town Hall meeting.

  • Adelante Gap Analysis

    Posted by Ty Specht on 8/14/2017 7:00:00 PM

    The Master Plan developed by LPA outlined the future vision for Redwood City Schools 10 - 15 years into the future. Rarely can a single bond program accomplish everything a master facility plan outlines. This is true for the current Measure T Bond and the RCSD Master Facility Plan. The Measure T Bond has a limited amount of resources to be shared by all school sites based on the Board of Education approved funding allocations.


    With the understanding of each schools sites budget, the architect completing the Facility Master Plan was asked to provide an approximate scope of work at each school that could meet the budget allocations. This plan is known as the "blue line" plans shared with the community.


    The “blue line” plans take a very high level vision and attempted to separate the plan into a first phase of work to align with the Measure T Bond funding. Unfortunately, some small omissions occurred in this plan causing a potential gap in teaching and resource spaces. The Bond Program Team presented to the Board of Education a “gap analysis” which outlined these omissions and how the Board of Education needed to realign each school's vision with the funding available to ensure no loss in teaching space or student resources while staying authentic to the goals of the Facility Master Plan. 


    The attached document outlines this exercise.

  • Adelante RCSD FMP

    Posted by Ty Specht on 8/14/2017 6:00:00 PM

    The attached document is the Master Plan guide for Redwood City Schools. 


    "A Facilities Master Plan (FMP) is strategic in nature. It identifies a vision for the next 10 to 15 years. The site master plans (refer to Section 4.0) provide a graphic representation of this vision for each site. It is important to note that the individual school site master plan is not a design but rather a plan for the future improvement of the District's facilities, in support of the educational program goals for student achievement."

    Please read all four sections of the Master Plan to understand the process, planning and considerations, projected costs, and site specific plans for your school. 


    The Master Plan is one of many documents informing the design decisions made at your school.
