Placeholder Image

Weston Elementary School is all but completed.

The ball could soon be rolling on remodeling for Colony Oak Elementary School.

An update on these two Measure G projects will be provided at Monday’s Ripon Unified school board meeting.

Khushroo Gheyara, chief executive officer of Program Management Integration, is scheduled to speak on the two voter-approved modernization projects during the school board session in the City of Ripon Council Chambers, 259 N. Wilma Ave.

Included in his update:

The Weston campus, as hoped, is ready for the first day of school on Wednesday.

Despite earlier delays, the project, stalled while awaiting certain DSA approval, maintained its original timeline.

Teachers and staff have since moved in and are in the final stages of setting up for the new school year.

Landscaping has been accelerated through the use of grass sod in lieu of the specific hydro seed. In turn, enabling use of the play yards at an earlier date.

The change orders for the $10.4 million project were funded out of the money set aside for the contingency and developer fees.

Weston is looking to install bleachers in the new Multi-Purpose Room.

The architect is scheduled to hold a “job walk” on the Colony Oak campus.

Interview and selection of architect will be conducted.

From there, the design of the new Colony Oak campus can commence.

More information on the 7 p.m. open session can be obtained by calling the district office at 209.599.2131 or log on to www.riponusd.net.
