SEPTIC SYSTEM UPGRADE AT LAGUNA VISTA: $700,000
With additional classroom capacity will come the need to add one 5,000 gallon septic tank and expand the existing leach field system. This year alone, we have increased our pumping capacity by approximately 50%. Growth is beginning to tax the existing system. We monitor the existing pumps on a monthly basis.
RUBBERIZING PLAY SURFACES: $1,000,000
All the apparatus pits at Tierra Vista, Mar Vista, and Laguna Vista are currently maintained with sand. This requires constant care. They are roto-tilled semi-annually to prevent compaction, raked weekly for glass and other sharp objects, and refilled annually as the sand levels drop. Another major area of concern is the amount of sand that is tracked into our classrooms, causing cleaning issues. Rubberized surfaces would eliminate all the above issues plus present a much safer surface for our children to play on.
NEW 2 STORY WING AT OVJHS: $6,000,000
We currently have a 2-story classroom wing at the Junior High. The new 2-story wing would set just to the East of the existing wing. This would require the removal and relocation of nine modular classrooms and one modular restroom facility to two other school sites. The new wing would include 16 classrooms and two sets of restrooms; giving the Junior High an additional seven classrooms for future growth.
NEW 4-CLASSROOM WING AT MAR VISTA: $700,000
This wing would be constructed to the West of the existing 700 wing. The 4 classrooms would be relocated from the Junior High. Since Ocean View already owns these buildings, all expenses would be to develop the site. These rooms would help Mar Vista possibly to offer extended day Kindergarten program and/or provide additional classrooms for future growth.
NEW 5-CLASSROOM WING AT TIERRA VISTA: $900,000
The utilities are currently stubbed out to incorporate an additional 5 modular classroom wing at Tierra Vista. The wing would be constructed to the North of classrooms 401-404. The 5 classrooms would be relocated from Ocean View Junior High. Since Ocean View already owns these buildings, the predominant amount of the expense to develop this wing would be the site work. This includes the foundation for the buildings, sidewalks and ADA required ramps, landscape, and the termination of utilities.
UTILITY UPGRADES AT ALL SITES: $500,000
This would involve the removal and replacement of a tremendous amount of our underground wiring to upgrade our Fire Alarm systems, Data, Security, and Telephone lines. We are at the point of needing to expand our capacity for Data “drops” to each classroom to possibly 3 or 4 to accommodate educational programs in our classrooms.
INFRASTRUCTURE UPGRADES AT ALL SITES: $700,000
This would include the removal and replacement of old roofs along with the upgrades of existing ventilation systems. Many classrooms are still using old space heaters. Upgrades would allow us to install energy efficient systems with air conditioning and still operate cheaper than we currently are on the old systems.
RE-ORGANIZATION OF THE ATHLETIC FIELDS AT OVJH: $2,000,000
The Junior High athletic field has many issues: There is no running track, baseball fields are poorly placed throughout the field, and the surface is very rough and uneven due to many years of gopher activity. The goal here would be to develop an all-weather track and redesign all baseball diamonds. Also, the complete surface area would be leveled through extensive site preparation.
