Public Input Meetings

September 26, 2014 - On behalf of the Burlingame School District (BSD) Board of Trustees, the BSD has launched the Facilities Modernization Bond Program funded by the proceeds of the November 2012 voter approved "Measure D" bond measure.

The District feels strongly that the more robust the public process is, the better the project outcome will be. Staff at all BSD schools are working with Architects to develop the Schematic Designs for Site improvements.  In addition our design team at BIS is working on modernization of the BIS Media Center. The District is inviting you to attend these evening meetings focused on Schematic Design of the proposed improvements and BIS Media Center.

Schematic Design: Is the first phase in the design of a project where the project team prepares initial diagrams and drawings giving a general view of the components and the scale of the project after detailed discussions with the BSD staff and the community.

These Public Input Meetings are the community's opportunity to contribute to the design. There will be additional public presentations on the progress of these designs to the Board of Trustees.

If you are unable to attend these meetings and would like to submit input, please send your comments to the District's Director of Facilities, Tim Ryan at tryan@bsd.k12.ca.us, or (650) 259-3913.

The intent of these School Site Improvement projects and their associated budgets, is to repair possible tripping hazards and drainage issues on walkways and blacktop; and to develop the layout for the playground and game court striping.

At the BIS Meeting there will be discussion of the Library and Science Classroom building and adjacent courtyards.  And how a school library can support a 21st Century education.

In preparation here are some questions to help identify opportunities:

  • What opportunities are there to improve the Educational environment for play areas / black tops?
  • What inspired you as a student to want to attend school?
  • What is currently working well on the playground and game court striping?
  • Are there areas of standing water (ponding) or drainage issues that you have observed?
  • Have you noticed any areas of slip tripping hazards?
  • Thinking outside the four (4) walls of the classroom, what are the things our students need to experience at school?
  • And at BIS - how can a media center promote cross pollination / cross subject teaching for communities focus?
