In June 2012, Milpitas residents answered bond proposition Measure E with a resounding yes to upgrade aging facilities across Milpitas Unified School District and began the journey of developing a new Elementary School. Shortly after the bond passed district staff hit the ground running to fulfill our promise to voters. Work included everything from exterior painting, to roofing, flooring, and replacing aging heating and air conditioning equipment. In addition a flexible learning environment was created at each site which enabled the district to roll out 21st century learning practices such as STEAH, project-based learning, and blended learning. And to support dynamic instruction, our technology infrastructure was overhauled. Fast wireless networking was installed in every building and the district purchased over five thousand Chromebooks for student use, making tech tools as ubiquitous as pencils and calculators By the end of the 2015 school year the work on our existing facilities was complete more than a whole year ahead of schedule. And after careful analysis of our expenditures, district staff discovered we completed the modernization projects 6.3% under budget meaning we had 3.2 million dollars to spend on additional projects such as adding nine portables. We’re currently working on our last Measure E project, the new Elementary School on McCandless Boulevard, located in the Milpitas transit area. The first phase of the school is on track to open its doors in August of 2018 to 238 students. As we turn our attention toward unfinished and additional needs in coming years, we are proud to say that we are able to stand strong today because of you. Thank you for your continued support and allowing Milpitas Unified School District students to thrive in a culture of we.
