Lakeport Unified Trustees Vote To Pursue $17 Million Bond Measure

More than 65 percent of respondents were in favor of the bond Lakeport Unified is proposing, according to a report Isom gave the board last month. The projects listed in the bond measure resolution the board passed Thursday night include access to technology; upgrades to existing classroom and school facilities or construction of new ones; a new library/media center for Terrace Middle School; renovation of the Westshore Pool; replacing aging temporary portables with permanent classrooms; construction of a food service dining area for high school students; upgrading playgrounds, fields, gym and weight room facilities; and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility upgrades. Whitmore said today’s 21st century educational environments are centered on students, and focus on collaboration, mobility and flexibility. As an example of classroom upgrades the district may want to consider, Whitmore showed a Lakeport Unified classroom alongside a more modern demonstration classroom the firm has designed. Rather than a room crowded with small individual desks, the newer classroom had tables and chairs on castors that can be easily moved, a smart board and interactive project. The idea with 21st century learning is that it’s agile, Whitmore said. Whitmore said BCA suggested upgrading the district’s classrooms in order for its schools to be more competitive and viable.
