Sierra High modernization to begin soon


More upgrades are coming for Sierra High, the third-oldest high school campus in the Manteca Unified School District.

The school board on Tuesday approved the continuation of CT Brayton & Sons of Escalon to complete the Sierra High modernization project.

This means that Manteca’s three high school campuses – Sierra, East Union, and Manteca – will simultaneously have work on Measure G bonds. Voters approved the $ 159 million bond in November 2014.

Work underway at the 26-year-old school includes work on every building on the Sierra High campus.

* The fire alarm and paging system are replaced throughout the campus.

* Changes are made to several toilets.

* The main parking lot will have a complete renovation as well as design changes.

* Modernization of the classroom within the AG Wing, including electrical upgrades and ventilation upgrades.

* America with Disabilities compliance applies campus-wide.

Measure G funds of $ 11.9 million have been allocated to campus projects.
Some of that money was used last year to replace flooring in 35 classrooms, 14 mobile classrooms, the library, cafeteria, performing arts center and administrative offices. The tennis courts were also rebuilt using G-measure bond receipts.

There are identified needs costing Sierra High $ 31.4 million that relate to health and safety, deferred / major maintenance, modernization and upgrades, and resolution of compliance issues. coded. Once the work-in-progress is completed, approximately $ 20 million worth of work will still be required.

Some or all of the remaining work could be completed with the proceeds of the $ 260 million Measure A bond voters approved last November.
