Calexico School District Facilities Action Plan

By Mario Conde

The Calexico Unified School District approved the District Facilities Action Plan to assist in improvement projects for the District.

In a meeting held November 19th the board voted 4-1 to approve the District Action plan having Board Member Gloria Romo opposing the item since, according to her, there is no justification to hire three consultants for this plan. The board approved to hire WLC Architects Inc. and their services will include assessments of district facilities, district loading standards, school site master plans, funding source analyst, future school site analysis, and final documentation preparation. The recommendation to hire these consultants came after city staff presented the needs assessments for the district facilities.

County Executive Officer Ralph Cordova said last week that by not including the equipment expenses the agreement would not be cost neutral and will have negative effects to both parties.
