Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies for Stone Valley MS and San Ramon High

Danville, CA — This August, the San Ramon Valley Unified School District will celebrate with the community the completion of its two biggest Measure D facilities projects.

On Thursday, August 8 at 9 a.m. the ribbon will be cut on the new classroom building at the District’s most historic high school, San Ramon Valley High. This $64 million project provides 52 new classrooms in a beautiful three-story building that includes modern science labs and flexible spaces for learning. Students and teachers have been housed in portable classroom buildings since 2016 while the building was under construction. The project includes a partnership with the Town of Danville to expand the parking to get student commuters into the school’s parking lot and provide additional spaces for the Town’s use outside of school hours. This is the largest project in the voter-approved Measure D facilities bond passed in 2012. 

Later in the month, on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 6 p.m., a ribbon cutting will take place at Stone Valley Middle School to celebrate the completion of the Measure D funded Stone Valley Middle School Classroom and Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) replacement project.  The classroom project includes additional classrooms, upgrading and modernizing existing facilities, reinforcing security, earthquake and fire systems and updating technology infrastructure to support 21st century teaching and learning. Students and staff have been housed in portable classroom buildings on the playfield since the project began in 2016.  The project is estimated to cost $37.5 million.

This $260 million Measure D General Obligation Bond funds capital improvements throughout the SRVUSD. Projects include providing additional classrooms, upgrading and modernizing existing facilities, reinforcing security, earthquake and fire systems and updating technology infrastructure to support 21st century teaching and learning.

Both San Ramon Valley High School and Stone Valley Middle School students and staff will occupy their new classrooms when they return to school on Tuesday, August 13, 2019.

SRVHS New Classroom Building Open House/Tour

The San Ramon Valley community is invited to visit the new classroom building on May 16, 2019, at an Open House to showcase the brand new, community-funded SRVHS Classroom building. The event will begin with a few remarks starting at 3:30 p.m. and be open to the public until 5 p.m. for tours. SRVHS is located at 501 Danville Blvd., Danville.

The first teachers are scheduled to move into their classrooms mid-May, with full occupancy expected by the start of school, Fall 2019. The classroom building is funded with Measure D dollars. Measure D is a $260 million bond measure passed by voters in 2012 for the purpose of providing San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) students with safe, modern 21st century learning environments.

The new 3-story building will house 52 classrooms. After the new building is complete, District staff will commence with the construction of the new parking lot between the building and the Iron Horse Trail, as well as restoring the athletic playfields where the temporary classrooms currently sit.  

The addition of the new classroom building further completes the renovation of the SRVHS campus which was founded in 1910. For more information about Measure D projects, please visit www.buildSRVschools.org

Final Measure D Bond Sale

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is pleased to share that the final bond sale of the $260 million Measure D authorization was completed on December 3, 2018. This sale stands as the third and final bond series issuance of Measure D, a voter approved bond authorization passed in 2012. The sale generated the final $60 million in cash proceeds required to finance Measure D facilities projects and captured incredibly favorable financial terms for our community. The interest rate and the payback ratio secured in this final sale continue the District’s commitment to keep the total yearly cost to homeowners at or below $75 per $100,000 of assessed valuation. An average interest rate of 1.90% across the $60 million in bonds, combined with a payback ratio of 1.08 or just $64.9 million, maximizes the amount of community tax dollars invested directly into Measure D facilities projects. “We are very pleased with the financial terms of this sale, which represent a historically positive outcome for the taxpayers of the SRVUSD,” said SRVUSD Superintendent Rick Schmitt. “We are grateful to our community for their continued support and investment in our schools and students.” This latest bond sale will provide the necessary cash flow to complete two of Measure D’s largest projects, the new classroom building at SRVHS, and the new classroom and MPR buildings at Stone Valley Middle School. Additionally, the bond sale will be used to complete the modernizations at Golden View, Montevideo, Ranch Romero, Vista Grande, and Green Valley Elementary Schools this summer, 2019. Lastly, the District will begin the modernization at Sycamore Elementary this summer 2019, as well as the modernizations at Alamo and Twin Creeks Elementary Schools and Charlotte Wood Middle next summer, 2020. The SRVUSD thanks the community for supporting the investment in our school facilities by authorizing the Measure D bond program. Better school facilities support stronger communities and help maintain strong property values.
