TUSD Working on Facility Projects During the Summer
During the summer, the Tustin Unified School District's Maintenance and Operations Department is practicing its 3 R's – repairing, renovating and remodeling. District staff will be managing or directly performing over 130 maintenance projects across 29 schools.
TUSD has several construction projects in the works, including a new two-story classroom building at Robert Heideman Elementary School and solar carports and shade structures at 15 schools. The Heideman project is being funded through the Measure L modernization program, special reserves and developer fees.
In addition, the District is working on several maintenance projects at local schools under its Deferred Maintenance Program, according to David Miranda, Senior Director of Maintenance, Operations and Facilities. Projects include painting, carpeting, roofing, slurry coating, replacing lighting and heating, ventilation and air conditioning units, relocating the Special Education office to the Hillview High campus, and expanding the parking lots at Helen Estock Elementary School and Hillview and Tustin high schools.
"The District annually assesses the function and condition of all existing school building components and proceeds with projects based on typical component life span and repairs with the greatest need," Miranda said.
