2014-15 Levy Projects

2014-15 Capital Levy Project Summary:

HS Atrium Roof 


The South Whidbey High School roof in the old commons (atrium) was a glass roof which suffered leak problems for years. The glass roof was removed and replaced by a solid metal roof. The new roof has performed well. No more leaks and the remaining glass wall has preserved the light and openness of the space.

 HS Stadium Roof

The HS stadium roof had multiple leaks and some areas of rust. Repairs were made to damaged areas and the roof resurfaced.

South Campus Roofing

Most of the primary school roof was replaced a few years ago. Two sections remained to address: The gym/kitchen and the covered play area. Both were addressed in this project.

Garden Program Portable Roofing

The school garden building enjoyed a number of improvements. Volunteers painted and made many repairs. The district put a new roof on the building.

LMS Carpet and Painting

We finished the the classroom carpet replacements that began a few years back. Hallways and walk-off areas were also carpeted. The halls and office in the main building were painted as well, giving the entire building a fresh look for the new school year.

High School Student Furniture

Most student furniture at the high school dated to the 1980s and 90s. A significant percentage was damaged and in need of repair or replacement. New furniture was purchased for about half of theclassrooms. The new furniture provides much moreflexibility for teachers, looks great and is more durable. Feedback from students and staff has been great. Remaining classrooms will receive new furniture in a future purchase.

High School Access Control and Video Security

To better control facility access and deal more cost-effectively with lost keys, an electronic access control system using proximity cards was installed at the high school. 29 doors were fitted with card readers and lock controls. This system will provide better building security, more flexibility when working with different facility users and will greatly reduce the cost of re-keying the building when keys are lost or stolen. Future projects will incorporate access control at our other school sites.
Additional security cameras were also installed at the high school as part of our safety improvements.

 Safety Lighting

Numerous high efficiency (LED) safety lights were installed at all of the schools to provide better outside visibility at night.

 LMS and PS HVAC Upgrades

The district upgraded the middle school and primary school HVAC control software and installed controls in the middle school two-story building. The new controls provide better temperature control as well as monitoring and controlling CO2 levels in the classrooms. In practice, the new controls have met or exceeded our expectations. Future upgrades to the HVAC systems will include these modifications.

Elementary School Heat Pump Replacement - Phase I

The first phase of heat pump replacements at the elementary school was completed this winter. Five units were replaced along with new thermostat controls which monitor CO2 levels as well as room temperature. The new units are quieter, more energy efficient and modulate the room temperature much better than the old ones. They also control the intake of outside air as needed based on the CO2 levels in the room. At this point, we plan to continue replacements this summer with the same models.

LMS Dumpster Pad

The dumpster pad at Langley Middle School was in poor condition and difficult to use. The district designed and built a new concrete pad and ramp for both garbage and recycle collection. The new system is safer and easier to use, less prone to damage when containers are exchanged and provides a model for similar improvements at other school sites.

Gymnasium Safety - All Sites - Backboard Straps

Basketball backboards that can be moved out of the way when not needed provide much needed flexibility in our gym spaces. The single cable mechanism on our backboards did not provide a safety backup in the case of a cable or mechanical failure. This project installed safety straps on each of our gym backboards as a backup in case of such a failure. They operate much like a car seatbelt to prevent the backboard from falling.

HS Practice Field Tree Removal

Over the years, our practice field and retention pond at the high school have been encroached upon by the growth of alder trees. Up to 30 feet of the practice field had been lost and the retention pond perimeter had become blocked and the fence damaged by tree fall. This project cleared back the trees to reclaim those areas.

Fuel Management System

Our existing fuel management system was becoming unreliable and was replaced by a new system which provides better monitoring, reporting and access.

Drainfield Improvements at HS and Elementary

Lateral cleanouts provide an important tool for drainfield inspection and maintenance. Our HS and Elementary drainfields were not built with this feature. We can now monitor and service these facilities better.

HS Fastpitch Batting Cages
Along with other improvements for fastpitch at the HS, two new outdoor batting cages were installed on the south side of the fastpitch field.
