This page is about bond construction renovations at the existing North Plains Elementary School. To view information about the NEW elementary school that was built in North Plains, visit the Atfalati Ridge Elementary School page.
Scope of Work
Please note that project costs and schedules may fluctuate due to cost of materials and labor, conditions at the site, unforeseen and/or revised scope, and other factors. Projected budget for all projects: $11.1 million
June - August 2022
- Replacement of Windows, HVAC Unit
The final renovations at North Plains will take place in summer 2022: replacement of the existing single-paned windows with double-paned windows; and replacement of HVAC units. Both projects will increase the energy efficiency and comfort in the building.
Construction projects provided safety and seismic upgrades to the North Plains building in summer 2021. The portables were removed (going to the Peter Boscow site) and a new playground was constructed in their place.
- New Gym
A new gymnasium provides exclusive use for indoor PE, activities and school events. The facility is also available for recreational youth basketball and volleyball leagues. The gym was substantially completed in Jan. 2021
- Parent Dropoff/Parking Lot
In spring 2020, the staff parking lot and bus dropoff area was repaved and striped. A new parent dropoff and parking lot was completed in Sept. 2020 to enhance pedestrian and vehicle safety as well as to improve traffic queueing and efficiency.
- Roofing, Relocation of Portables
In summer 2018, North Plains received new roofing, improving the building environment. In addition, two portables were relocated to North Plains from Patterson and Reedville Elementary Schools. They provide North Plains with four additional classrooms, which will help to accommodate enrollment growth until the new elementary school is built in the Sunset Ridge development. The portables also will provide additional storage to the school.
- Flexible Furniture
North Plains students enjoyed new flexible furniture (FFE) when they returned to school for the 2018-19 school year. Research has shown that this furniture promotes engagement and learning.
