H1 Facilities Steering Committee – Application Process

Thursday, December 15th, 2016 - Posted in All District News Bond Updates Modernization

The Piedmont Unified School District is soliciting applications for the H1 Facilities Steering Committee.

Piedmont Unified’s Facilities Steering Committee is an advisory group made up of community members with professional experience and expertise relevant to the District’s capital projects. The Committee provides advice and guidance to the Superintendent in the planning, management, and oversight of these projects.

The District relied on the Committee to oversee both the Seismic Safety Bond Program and the Modernization Program. Members of the Committee helped guide these programs to successful completion — both programs were completed on time and on budget, with high levels of community satisfaction in the completed projects.

During the Spring of 2016, the Committee studied Piedmont Unified’s Facilities Master Plan, discussed how to accomplish the most pressing educational goals identified in the Plan, and considered how to get the most value for the investment. The Committee helped identify conceptual designs, scrutinized cost estimates, and its recommendations are reflected in what ultimately became the H1 bond measure.

Members of the Facilities Steering Committee are selected by the Superintendent and Director of Facilities based on their professional background and experience. There are currently 13 members (including 2 Board Members, 5 staff members, and 6 community members). The District is looking for 4-8 additional community members with a background in construction, architecture, design, real-estate and/or construction law, and/or experience in the STEAM fields. Members serve as volunteers under the direction of the Superintendent.

In general, the Committee meets bi-monthly (during the school day) during planning and construction of projects, and otherwise as needed. Applicants are asked to commit to a two-year term to ensure continuity.

Application Process:

The application process and selection timeline will be announced at the December 14th and January 11th Board of Education meetings, and the school bulletins. It will also be posted on the District Website.
