PreK-12 Education, *On the Boards
Fremont Bond Program
For Fremont Public Schools 2021 Bond, BVH worked with the district and community to set the scope and budget for the overall bond program of 12 projects. The process started with an evaluation of all district buildings and sites to determine the current conditions, establish needs and evaluate the potential for reuse and reinvestment at each facility. A concurrent educational alignment process looked at the needs to support education and activities across the district.
This process looked at both current and future needs, including future educational programming for key community growth in CTE (Career and Technical Education) as well as safety and security. Programming and master planning followed the first two phases to set the space requirements, examine various design options and establish individual project budgets as well as the overall bond program budget.
Through the process, the community was engaged to communicate the understanding of existing facility conditions and to engage the community in prioritizing the needs as well as establishing the ultimate bond amount to go to the voters. The $123M bond was successful on the first vote.
BVH has worked continuously with Fremont Public Schools since their 1999 bond program. We are proud to have worked through three successful community votes and the resulting work. We are also committed to Fremont, like many other clients, for smaller needs that arise in-between the larger projects.
