2020 Solar and Perimeter Fence projects

(Funded by Measure T)

Measure T, the $259 million bond issue passed in 2020, included plans for a variety of projects that will increase safety, efficiency and provide for short-term growth at our schools. 

HVAC
Replacement and improvements of HVAC equipment is scheduled.  HVAC filter replacements have been completed, and accordance with the CDC and County guidelines, will increase airflow and filtration reduce the chance of coronavirus spread. 

Security
Improving perimeter fencing and adding gates to completely enclose campus and fields in order to secure campuses and make COVID screening more efficient. Fencing and gates would be ornamental metal to match existing at campus frontage and 6’ high chain link fencing and gates at property lines and back of campus.  The construction timeline for this project is estimated to be October-January. 

The purpose of fencing is to control points of entry during school hours. It’s important to note that the public will have access to fields outside school hours. The intention is to secure campuses when students are present, and have gates open through a lock management system in the evenings and on weekends. 

Graham will get new ornamental gates at the Castro entrances to campus on either side of the library, as well as gates at the auditorium entrance and from the side parking lot near building 11. New six- foot chain-link fence between the sports pavilion parking lot, track and school.

Solar
At the June 14, 2018 meeting the Board gave direction to continue with the concept of solar panels in MVWSD. In May 2020, the district got feedback on the design and placement of the solar arrays. The District is currently working with Engie and Sage on contract revisions and hopes to bring a contract to the board in October 2020.

Lighting
New light standards and/or bollard style light post to illuminate path of travel to/from campus and parking lots.

Window Replacement
The District will replace existing, older single pane windows at Graham.

2016-19 New Innovation Center, Auditorium, Classroom Renovations

(Funded by Measure G)

Summer 2019 
District-owned portable classrooms were refreshed in summer 2019,  meaning they have new paint, carpet and whiteboards.

The school has a new sign in the front. This sign, paid for with Measure G funds, will include accurate school and district names. Funding for construction and capital improvements, like school signs, come from restricted funds that can be used only for that purpose. The District used an innovative approach to piggyback on existing, competitive local government contracts to lower the sign cost and expedite installation.

Completed: Graham Middle School Innovation Center and Graham Middle Auditorium

Summer 2018:
* Track and field were closed for scheduled maintenance work on the field by the City of Mountain View.
* Improvements and renovations on the courtyard near the auditorium entrance, including outdoor seating.
