After community meetings, the Board of Trustees approved a plan in June 2016 to encompass construction of Stevenson, Theuerkauf, relocation of the Preschool program from the Slater site and rebuilding of the District Office. Stevenson projects include a new multi-use room, new library converted from the existing Board Room, new wings of classrooms, and new administrative offices.

Meanwhile, plans are underway for a new District Office building and Preschool (currently housed in portables at Slater) with construction set to begin in summer 2018. The District Office moves to Stevenson’s current multi-use housing in Summer 2018.

The new District Office is planned to be completed in January 2019. Finally, in Spring 2019, the District will convert Stevenson’s current transitional, multi-use housing to preschool classrooms and relocate Slater Preschool to its new location.

What’s happening now
Construction on the new Stevenson campus began in September 2017 and will continue through June 2018, including demolition of the former Stevenson pod and installation of the foundation of the new school building. The school will be complete in June, with the MUR completed in November 2018, and the library completed in August 2018.

Work is planned for weekdays, from 7 a.m.- 7 p.m. At this time, weekend work is not planned, but could occur near construction deadlines. There will be truck traffic coming and going on San Pierre doing dirt offhaul in the fall and transporting heavy equipment and delivering steel this winter.

Dust may occur, and the District will follow procedures and best practices to reduce as much as possible any potential disruptions. The District will use the standard construction practice of watering down soil as it becomes dry to reduce dust. The equipment used on the site and dust control measures we employ comply with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District standards. Additionally, there will be a green fabric screen applied to the fence to reduce the movement of dust across the site.

The District has worked very hard over the years to do the work, funded by Measure G, to make facilities improvements and renovations at every school a reality. The results will be amazing. There will be new and updated classrooms, libraries and MURs. We appreciate your support and understanding as we take one step closer to improving each of our schools for our students, staff and community.

the District completed site grading and classroom portables placement in Summer 2017. The first phase of the project is complete; installing a 20+ room multi-use, transitional housing that will be used temporarily by Stevenson.

Phase 2 is currently underway.

Additionally, the District added a pedestrian path at the back of the campus from Montecito to Theuerkauf.
