1 Humboldt County School District Community update Bond Projects November 13, 2013 10 am and 7 pm

2 5 Year Review The Humboldt County School District staff and their consultants have been quite busy over the last 5 years, tackling the projects that were approved by the community in the 2008 bond campaign. These projects were clearly targeted and identified in previous assessments and broken down into categories and with assigned priorities. – Categories included: – Safety/Accessibility/Liability concerns – Code Compliance – Building Systems/Energy Efficiency – Site/Building Functional Improvements – Appearance The 2008 Bond Campaign was to provide roughly $8.5 million in rollover funds for projects predicated on certain property values. Thankfully the community has seen growth and property value increase, allowing the District to draw a projected $16 million + over 10 years It should be noted that the initial bond campaign focused on roughly $8.5 million in improvements out of a then identified list of over $23 million in needs. The following projects worth roughly $10.5 have been completed

15 Solar Projects Although the solar projects undertaken at the district were not “bond projects” we felt it important to update the community on those projects and how they were funded: Total project costs were roughly $5.6 million, of which $5.1 million was paid for by immediate rebates from NV Energy. Leaving the HCSD to pay for only $500k out of pocket (financed by savings generated) Total out of pocket expense roughly $500 k, with annual savings in range of $160k in reduced electrical charges We installed 1 megawatt of total solar systems at 7 different sites, with large systems at Lowry High School, Winnemucca Jr. High, French Ford, Sonoma and Grass Valley. These systems also benefited the district by providing shade structures at Lowry High School, French Ford and Sonoma

16 Work yet to be Completed Although we have completed the majority of our “commitments” from the 08’ bond campaign along with a significant amount of projects that weren’t previously identified in that campaign that were supported by the oversight committee (ADA compliance, emergency repairs of water mains, bleacher upgrades, HVAC complete system replacement in lieu of just adding cooling, emphasis on “security”) – there are a few major projects that remain from the initial campaign – including: Cooling at Grammar “historic” building - $800k with options still being considered New HVAC/Cooling at WJH (not previously identified) - $2 million New HVAC/Cooling at Lowry - $2 million Re-roofing – Grass Valley, Sonoma, Grammar, Kings River/Denio and portions of Lowry - $450k Secure Entries – Sonoma, McDermitt, French Ford and Lowry with systematic reviews of other locations

17 Process for Reprioritization Review of 2008 original needs assessment (@$23 million in need identified – pared down to $8.5 million) New facilities assessment conducted by MMM Discussion with District Facilities Personnel Consultation with Site Administrators Discussion with Board of Trustees Community Forum - Today

18 Review Prior Priorities As part of this re-prioritization, areas of need originally identified were revisited and added as determined necessary

32 Additional Considerations In 2008, voters provided a 10 year roll-over. Rate is 13.5 per $100 AV. We are half way through the initiative. Timing for a continuation (recommend maintain current level with Pay as you go as primary mechanism) Potential growth/expansion needs

33 Expansion Possibilities - Costs FFMS - $5,021,000 LHS - $14,227,000 SHS - $3,637,500 WJHS - $6,712,500 Based on space availability and contingent on needs Would require separate bond support to accomplish

34 New Construction Would be contingent on significant growth through the development of housing areas Would require separate bond initiative Typically, cost is around $20 million Would create a new attendance zone Significant growth would be required prior to consideration

35 Comments After considering the information provided tonight: – What are your thoughts? – What has gone well? – What, if anything, are we missing that should be considered? – What can we improve on?

36 Thank You We appreciate your time and support for the students of Humboldt County School District
