At a May 8 board meeting, plans for the Measure H bond program were reviewed. The board supported the recommended approach, which included renewed approvals for the budget allocations for the previously approved projects. Those include:
  • The ongoing district solar project and renovations at Winton Middle School and Lorin Eden Elementary
  • The Performing Arts Center (with new feedback from the community regarding the design)
  • An approval of 11 projects for the 2019 summer months as identified by HUSD facilities leadership for urgent needs around roof replacement, external painting, fire alarm replacements, and public address system replacements
  • Confirmation on the recommended direction for how to proceed with the remainder of the funds, with priority towards: a) safety & health systems b) external building shell renovations to protect and preserve future classroom improvements c) remaining funds going towards a developed classroom modernization program
