  In the fall of 2012 and winter 2013, the Menlo Park City School District conducted an Enrollment Projection Study and updated its Facility Master Plan for the next decade.  Based on projected enrollments, large school sizes, and lack of flexibility, the District determined it would need to expand into a fourth elementary campus. At the April 9, 2013, Board meeting, the District took action to submit a Notification of Termination to the German American International School (GAIS) to terminate the current lease of the O’Connor School site by June 30, 2014. The O’Connor School site is the only other school site the District owns in its boundary area.  During the last three months, the District has been exploring options on how to use the O’Connor site and several public meeting have been held regarding this issue.

At the April 9, 2013 meeting the Board requested a study session meeting to discuss specific options with the use of the O’Connor School site. At the April 30, 2013 meeting, Superintendent Ghysels and Facility Director Sheikholeslami will present information regarding the following:

1. Review Elementary School Configuration Options
2. Educational Configuration Analysis
3. Construction Options – Scope and Cost
4. Planning/Design/Construction Timeline Options
5. Bond Process, Timing and Cost

After presenting this information the Board will then have an opportunity to analyze the various options in relation to the Guiding Principles that were developed by the Board in January 2013.  Based on the analysis and any further information requested, the Board can then provide direction to the staff at the May 13, 2013 regular school Board meeting regarding configuration options, project scope, implementation timeline, and potential a potential Bond. Based on the direction given at the May 13, 2013 meeting, the District staff can then explore options with GIAS regarding any modifications to the termination of the lease. Further direction or action can be taken by the Board at the June 11, 2013 meeting.
