Editors Note: The following is part of a series on new construction, renovations and other projects underway, made possible through the 2015 Pleasanton ISD bond election.
One of the things that this bond has done that I think is unique, is that every single campus is touched, said Pleasanton ISD Superintendent Dr. Matthew Mann. So we have the primary project of the bathrooms and the eight classrooms, in addition to upgrading some of the outdoor facilities. We have the brand new elementary school that will be going in, addressing a lot of the traffic issues and things like that. The junior high classrooms are all being touched and renovated, painted and updated. We are putting in cost saving lighting and flooring and updating the HVAC with new roofing packages going into all of the roofs. There is also the high school which is getting a total facelift.
The list of projects included in the bond package was developed by a Long Range Planning Committee formed by the school district. The committee held several meetings before the bond election and listed the importance of projects, with Pleasanton Elementary School being listed first. The ranking of the remaining campuses came in as follows: Pleasanton High School and Career Tech, Pleasanton Primary School and Pleasanton Junior High.
