A district with heart... developing minds

Bond program

This bond ensures students have the opportunity to learn in a safe, up-to-date environment, and preserve school facilities as long term assets.

Dayton is a growing community that values a strong educational system with a rural sense of caring and teamwork, and therefore has been supportive of their schools which have an enrollment of about 1,015 students. The buildings were built in 1936, 1950, 1969, and 2010. Bonds approved for infrastructure improvements in 1999 and 2009 increased capacity, which improved the educational offerings. 

While District staff prioritize maintaining current facilities so that they are safe and productive learning environments, many structures are in need of significant repairs and maintenance that cannot be accomplished within the regular operating budget. The District will use the bond funds and grants to finance basic large-scale repairs, remove safety hazards, and make schools more energy efficient which will reduce facility operating expenses and allow more funds to be spent on education.

Current Activities
During this period, Carlson Viet Jung Architects (CVJ) continued to refine the Schematic Drawings, considering options for relocating the Administration Office next to the Vestibule to establish improved visibility and access control. The Library will be relocated to the existing Administration Office.

Activities Scheduled for Next Period
Next period, the Schematic Design phase will be complete and cost estimates will be provided by CVJ’s independent cost estimator and the Construction Manager | General Contractor (CM|GC) Triplett Wellman, Inc. Upon completion of cost estimates and Board approval of budget and design, the Design Development phase will begin.

Highlights
The highlight for this period was a fluid process by the Grade School Design Committee to provide options and final decisions for best design.

Current Activities
The Dayton High School bleachers are currently being removed by Norpac Seating. The new bleachers, by Hussey Seating, will proudly sport the Dayton Pirate’s logo when they are closed. When the bleachers are open, they will provide ADA accessible seating to the students and community attending athletic events in the gym. The bleachers will also be electronically controlled, which will allow for ease of use by teachers and staff during events. The existing bleachers, which were constructed with vertical grain fir planks, are will be salvaged and repurposed by the district.

Snyder roofing is continuing to reroof the Dayton Junior High & Dayton High School, with new 60 mil PVC roofing. Roofers are preparing adhesive, so they can glue the membrane down onto the coverboard. Roofers are tied off for safety, while working near the 6 foot safety perimeter set up around the roof.

Activities Scheduled for Next Period
Next period, the Schematic Design phase will be complete and cost estimates will be provided by CVJ’s independent cost estimator and the Construction Manager | General Contractor (CM|GC) Triplett Wellman, Inc. Upon completion of cost estimates and Board approval of budget and design, the Design Development phase will begin.
