At the monthly community meeting on November 3rd, Joe Dominguez, OUSD’s Deputy Chief of Facilities Planning and Management, spoke at length about some of the problems that caused the current project delay, he apologized for the role the District played in creating some of the delay, and shared steps the District is taking to keep the project moving quickly going forward.
Mr. Dominguez also made a commitment to full transparency moving forward. In that spirit, he shared an updated timeline, based on a more complete analysis conducted by the project contractor this week. Depending on when plans are approved by the Department of the State Architect (the agency responsible for reviewing all new school construction in the state), the current estimated project completion dates fall between mid-January and mid-March of 2019.
The project team will be working to prepare a detailed schedule for completion of the project so that parents and community members can have a better sense of what is to come. In partnership with Glenview parents, OUSD will also explore ways that community members can support the project and help ensure it continues to move forward as quickly as possible.
