Redmond School Board meeting recap – June 11
by Bend Weekly News Sources

REDMOND, Ore. – Redmond School Board meeting recap from June 11, 2008:

Bond Update:  

·         The Wickiup and NW-area sites were discussed as possible locations for the new 600-student replacement elementary.  At this time, District officials are recommending the 13-acre Wickiup parcel as the most viable site.

Criteria used to determine site:  The new elementary is a replacement not a growth school and, as such, must meet the current student population needs; reduce transportation costs by establishing a walking boundary; and any associated offsite costs (i.e., roads, sewer, water).

·         Wickiup 13-acre Site:  Less offsite costs than NW area; creates a neighborhood school; allows creation of walking attendance boundaries; and helps address the socioeconomic factors associated with Lynch Elementary’s current attendance boundaries.

·         NW-area 40-acre Site:  Due to the current construction economy, developers are not proceeding as aggressively in providing the needed infrastructure or with annexation to the City.  This site is still a viable solution for a future elementary/middle school or third high school, but will not meet the current needs for constructing the replacement school.

The school board will take action on the location at their June 25 board meeting.  Public input is encouraged.  For more information regarding the site selection, please contact Doug Snyder at 541.923.5437.

·         Deadline for RFQ (Request for Qualifications) for Architectural/Engineer Services for the new high school is June 17.  Proposals will be reviewed to determine a set of finalists at the sole discretion of the school district.  Finalists will be asked to present to a selection panel during the week of June 23-27.

·         The selected architect for the elementary school will be Barber, Barrett, Turner.

·         Deadline for letters of interest for those individuals wishing to serve on the design teams for the new high school and/or elementary is June 17.

Citizen Participation: Citizens expressed their concerns regarding the recent decision to adjust elementary PE and music time in order to move toward more equity among buildings and allow staff to focus on K-3 literacy and Elton Gregory Middle School’s decision to offer enrichment classes at the same time as band, possibly reducing the number of students who wish to participate in the program.
