The Mountain View Whisman School District (District) is seeking qualified, interested individuals to serve on

a committee of community leaders which will serve as the District Facilities Committee (DFC) to provide input

and recommendations regarding the District facilities master plan for the elementary school campuses.

In June 2012, local voters passed a bond measure which provides funding for safe, efficient and modern

facilities for the District. To date, the District has completed modernization projects at both middle schools and

has completed designs for new construction projects at the middle schools. As the District begins planning for

the elementary schools, key issues must be considered, including: 1) demographic trends, 2) the establishment

of two schools at Castro Elementary School effective for 2015-16 school year, 3) consideration of opening an

elementary school campus in the Whisman/Slater neighborhood, and 4) facilities needs. These issues impact

enrollment, facilities, and budget for the entire District and necessitate a review and possible adjustment of the

master facilities plan.

The DFC responsibilities include the following: (1) represent the community as a whole in the process of

evaluating the Student Facilities Improvement Plan and updated elementary school needs assessments, (2)

consider potential schedules and proposed budgets to make recommendations on standard project lists, (3)

examine prioritized implementation schedule and initial budget allocation for each elementary school site, and

(4) review the impact of programmatic changes at Castro and potentially reopening a school in the Whisman/

Slater neighborhood and how that influences the facilities master plan. The DFC will make recommendations

on specific facilities master plan related issues as requested by the Superintendent and inform the public about

the recommendations.

To the extent possible, participants will include the following:

• Parents, including representatives from the following: an elementary school, a middle school, PTA,

School Site Council, or English Learner Advisory Committee

• Community members residing in the Mountain View Whisman School District

• Principals

• Teachers

• Classified staff

Applications and additional information can be downloaded at http://www.mvwsd.org/facilities or may be
