Superintendent of Schools Alberto M. Carvalho, District 8 School Board member Dr. Marta Pérez, District 5 School Board member Susie V. Castillo, and community leaders gathered at Kinloch Park Middle School today for a kick-off event for bond projects resulting from the overwhelming voter approval of the $1.2 billion General Obligation Bond. The bond will be used to modernize and construct school buildings throughout the district, expand student capacity, enhance facility safety, and provide technology upgrades at all schools.
Kinloch Park Middle School renovations valued at close to $7.7 million include roofing, HVAC replacement, energy management controls, selective window replacement, restroom and plumbing renovations, auditorium improvements, security system and PA upgrades, as well as exterior painting. The School Board commissioned Laura M. Perez and Associates, Inc. as the architect of record. The firm, which is female-owned and certified by the school district as both W/MBE and SBE, has committed to a SBE/MBE sub-consultant participation goal of 35 percent. The projected date of construction is spring 2017.
