    This school year is gearing up to be an exciting one for Redwood City School District, and the Bond Team is looking forward to a year of continued progress for our schools as we work to bring more education opportunities for the future leaders of our community.

    The North Star Modernization project is currently under construction. Construction is expected to be completed by the start of the 2019-20 school year.

     

    The scope of work currently under construction includes:

    • New concrete walkways
    • Slurry coat and stripe existing paving
    • Updated safety locks for all classroom doors
    • Emergency response and wayfinding signage
    • Safety fencing and decorative gate
    • Security camera installation
    • Classroom technology package (includes Redcat Access classroom voice enhancement system and flat screen TVs on motorized, adjustable carts)

     

    All scope is subject to change.

     

    The Bond Team and the District are excited to see the progress being made to transform our schools into 21st century learning environments, and the progress and effect this Bond will have on our community.

  • North Star Design Updates

    Posted by Neta Assaf on 9/30/2018 6:00:00 AM

    Another summer full of fun (and work) has come and gone at North Star Academy! 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.

     

    North Star has already seen the completion of a new fabric lunch enclosure with benches in November 2017.

     

    This summer, North Star 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 North Star.
    • With DSA Sign off on June 2018, North Star has been bundled with McKinley Institute of Technology, and Orion as a single bid package to make the value of the construction more efficient. A bid walk for contractors was held in August 2018. Bids were received September 11, 2018.

     

    Next steps for North Star include a review of bid submissions for the Orion Alternative, McKinley Institute of Technology, and North Star Academy bid package, followed by the start of the construction phase.

     

    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.
