  • Roosevelt April Update

    Posted by Neta Assaf on 4/15/2019 7:00:00 PM

    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 educational opportunities for the future leaders of our community.


    In the 2017-18 school year, the Roosevelt School Modernization project went through Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Document phases.


    The Roosevelt Modernization project has, as of February 2019, been submitted to the Division of the State Architect (DSA). DSA is a government body that provides design and construction oversight for K-12 schools, and will review Roosevelt’s Modernization Construction Documents for compliance and accessibility.


    The scope of work submitted to DSA for Roosevelt Modernization includes, and is not limited to, the following:

    • New lunch shelter
    • New kitchen equipment
    • Updated storm water drainage system
    • Modernize existing restrooms
    • New concrete walkways
    • Exterior patch and paint
    • Selective flooring
    • Updated safety locks for all classroom doors
    • Emergency response and wayfinding signage
    • Safety fencing and decorative gate
    • Fire alarm system upgrades
    • Security camera installation
    • Upgrade It data wiring
    • Classroom technology package (includes Redcat Access classroom voice enhancement system)


    All scope is subject to change. The Roosevelt Modernization project is expected to complete DSA review in Fall 2019.


    Roosevelt will additionally complete a Solar Panel project. Construction for the Solar Panel project is currently expected to begin in June 2019 and to be completed by October 2019, dates 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.

  • Roosevelt Design Update

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

    Another summer full of fun (and work) has come and gone at Roosevelt 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, Roosevelt has been full of activity:

    • A Construction-Related Testing and Inspection Agreement with Ninyo and Moore was approved by the Board.
    • Responses to the Request for Proposals for the Prop 39 Solar Project have been received, and the Board has approved REC Solar.
    • The team received the Schematic Design set for Roosevelt, which determines the project requirements and goals.
    • The team received the Design Development set for Roosevelt, which expands on Schematic Design, finalizing the design, specific building materials, and engages additional design experts (i.e. structural, mechanical, and landscape engineers).
    • The team received a 50% Construction Documents notice – this phase will produce drawings with greater detail which will be used during construction.


    Next steps for the Roosevelt project include concluding the Construction Documents phase, followed by submission to the Division of the State Architect (DSA). Once DSA sign off has been received, Roosevelt will go into the bidding and construction phases.


    A site council meeting occurred on September 11, 2018.


    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.

  • Roosevelt Conceptual Design

    Posted by Ty Specht on 8/17/2017 10:00:00 AM

    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.

  • Roosevelt 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.

  • Roosevelt Gap Analysis

    Posted by Ty Specht on 8/17/2017 9:15:00 AM

    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, approximately $200 million dollars 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.

  • Roosevelt RCSD FMP

    Posted by Ty Specht on 8/17/2017 9:00:00 AM

    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. 

    Section 1 LPA Master Plan

    Section 2 LPA Master Plan

    Section 3 - LPA Master Plan

    Facilities Master Plan, Section 4, Site Master Plan: Roosevelt School
