School Modernization and Construction
Modernized learning spaces and emergent technologies offer opportunities for students to grow and explore effectually. In flexible and forward thinking environments, students are empowered to demonstrate knowledge in exciting ways using new tools at hand. Students remain engaged when labs are well equipped to aid their inquisitive minds and classrooms can move swiftly from a traditional setting to a space for collaborative team activities. Modernization and construction of new learning spaces helps meet the needs of today’s students and tomorrow’s leaders.
In Redwood City School District (RCSD), District facilities and schools have not kept pace with today’s standards of learning. Most of the District's schools are more than 50 years old, with some reaching nearly 100 years old. While some schools have been updated over the past 10 years, many need improvements to provide up-to-date classroom technology and meet current health and safety codes.
Our District undertook an extensive facilities master planning process in 2013-14, which identified over $600 million in critical repairs and updates needed at our District schools. The next year, our community approved a bond measure with over 63% support. This bond measure covered a third of these identified needs and has allowed us to complete Phase I improvements, which were focused on critical safety and security updates.
