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. 
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.

Theuerkauf will get new gates near the preschool and near the tennis courts.  Stevenson will get new gates for existing fence line at the field on Montecito. 

Perimeter fencing concerns and answers

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. 

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.

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 Theuerkauf.  

2017-19 Classroom Refresh and Multi-Use Room Renovation

(Funded by Measure G)

After community meetings, the Board of Trustees approved a plan in June 2016 to encompass construction of Stevenson, Theuerkauf and rebuilding of the District Office.

Summer 2019 
The multi-use room construction was complete in December 2019.  

District-owned portable classrooms were refreshed the summer of 2019,  meaning they got 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.

Summer 2018

Theuerkauf’s modernized classrooms, administrative offices and library were ready in August 2018. 

In mid-May, storage containers arrived and placed in the front parking lot. These containers housed classrooms materials and furnishings during the modernization of all classrooms and office area renovations. 

As you know, 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. However, construction requires extra accommodations. We appreciate your support and understanding as we take one step closer to improving each of our schools for our students, staff and community.

In Summer 2017, the District completed a pedestrian path at the back of the campus from Montecito to Theuerkauf.
