The Manteca Unified board is poised to authorize preconstruction and lease-leaseback services for the third round of Measure G school improvement projects on the same day voters are deciding the fate of the $260 million Measure R school bond.
The board meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the district office, 2271 West Louise Ave.
The projects entail work at McParland, New Haven and French Camp schools.
The lease-leaseback is a process where the contractor takes ownership of the project after determining costs. In doing so, they have more leeway to make adjustments as needed that allows the school district to save money and get projects built quicker.
McParland has a needs estimate of $13 million in the Master Facilities Plan. Of that amount, $8.5 million will be spent from Measure G. That leaves McParland with $4.5 million in needed projects left unfunded.
The items being tackled at McParland School are video surveillance, fire alarms, new bell and intercom system, lighting upgrades, flooring, plumbing, fencing changes, replacing playground, asphalt replacement, upgrade heating, air and ventilation, landscaping and field improvements, remove portables, new multi-use room and pavement improvement.
New Haven has a needs estimate of $12.6 million in the Master Facilities Plan. Of that, $6.1 million will be spent from Measure G and another $150,000 from IT for qualifying projects. That leaves New Haven with $5.9 million in needed projects left unfunded.
New Haven work includes asphalt replacement, fire alarms and suppression system, flood control renovate kinder bathrooms, security door hardware, replacing playgrounds, kindergarten classroom, and construction of multi-use room and restroom building.
As the oldest school in the district, French Camp has a needs estimate of $23.1 million in the Master Facilities Plan. Only $7 million is funded to be spent from Measure G and another $900,000 from Fund 35 and IT for qualifying projects. That leaves French Camp with a major $15.85 million in needed projects left unfunded.
French Camp projects include video surveillance, flooring, plumbing, fencing removal, replacing portables, energy upgrades, HVAC, field improvement, parking lot expansion, portable replacement, new classroom construction, and a shade structure.
The district’s second phase work at Nile Garden, Manteca High, and East Union High is now underway. Completed Measure G projects are Lathrop Elementary, Golden West, Lincoln, Neil Hafley, Sequoia, and Shasta.
