The Markham Elementary modernization project design, changes to the district’s facility use fee rate schedule and student absence verification methods are on the agenda when Vacaville Unified leaders meet Thursday.
The seven-member governing board is expected to approve the Markham project conceptual design, previously presented and aired at a March 15 meeting.
A Measure A project, it is set to break ground during summer 2019 and will cost nearly $36 million. The money will pay for a new classroom building, a new multipurpose room, upgrades to existing classrooms and removal of portable classrooms, among other things.
Measure A was the $194 million general obligation bond passed by district voters in November 2014, with the money to be used primarily to upgrade the district’s aging campuses, many of them more than 50 years old and several more than 60 years old.
