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
Carlson Veit Junge Architects (CVJ) met in separate Focus Groups with the Dayton Jr/Sr High School and Grade School Special Education Departments. Dr Brian Recht and HMK Company were present as the group discussed student needs, safety, ADA accessibility, lifeskills training, and how the facility design could best fit those needs.

ON JAN 29TH, CVJ and Fluent Engineering met with Superintendent, Dr. Brian Recht, Principal, Mike Solem, Facilites Director, Rick Palmer and staff members to discuss the fire alarm system, District wide communication during an emergency event, and access control.

A-Tech Northwest completed a moisture study on the Jr/Sr High School and grade school. This is a critical step when developing a re-roof scope of work, as it shows what areas of the roof that contain leaks that need to be a priority when reroofing over the summer.

IN FEBRUARY, RACI Engineers completed a mechanical assessment of the existing HVAC equipment at the Grade School and Jr/Sr High School. This assessment evaluates how existing equipment might be reused and what new systems are the most appropriate. This information has been provided to the District for consideration and decision for best method and systems for heating and cooling.

Dayton School District’s hazardous material consultant, G2 Consultants, will be investigating and sampling throughout Dayton High School and Grade School to understand the areas that may contain hazardous material. This process ensures that we understand the potential risks and can incorporate into design. Ultimately, ensuring any hazardous material is demo’d and removed safely by trained personnel.

IN MARCH, the Dayton School Board approved contracts for:
• Hazardous Materials Consultant Services Contract to DKI Consultants dba G2 Consultants for the amount of $25,920.00

Other activities included the approval of the Schematic Design for the Structured Learning Classrooms at the Jr/Sr High School and the Grade School. Final construction documents will be complete by the end of April. Bidding has commenced for the Re-roof at the Jr/Sr High School, with bids due on April 16, 2020.

Dayton School District Staff, Students, Families and Community:

As we continue to emphasize, the guidelines during this COVID-19 pandemic crisis are always evolving. Today we received the most detailed guidance yet from the Oregon Department of Education (ODE). We will continue to provide supplemental learning activities while we make a plan to provide equitable distance learning for all students in our district. With that, ODE is also signaling that there is a strong possibility that we may not be returning to normal schooling this academic year. We, as a district, will be looking at what all of this means for our students, staff, and Dayton community.

Please stay current as this situation evolves, continue to visit our website (daytonk12.org) and Facebook pages for information. We also want to share the resources available from the Oregon Department of Education at www.oregon.gov/ode/students-and-family/healthsafety/Pages/COVID19.aspx
Thank you,
Dayton School District Administration Team

Personal, estudiantes, familias y comunidad del distrito escolar de Dayton:

A medida que continuamos enfatizando, las guías durante esta crisis pandémica de COVID-19 siempre están evolucionando. Hoy recibimos la orientación más detallada del Departamento de Educación de Oregón (ODE). Continuaremos brindando actividades de aprendizaje suplementario mientras hacemos un plan para proporcionar un aprendizaje a distancia equitativo a la educación normal para todos los estudiantes en nuestro distrito. Con eso, ODE también está indicando que existe una gran posibilidad de que no regresemos a la escuela normal este año académico. Nosotros, como distrito, analizaremos qué significa todo esto para nuestros estudiantes, el personal y la comunidad de Dayton.

Manténgase informado a medida que esta situación evolucione, continúe visitando nuestro sitio web (daytonk12.org) y las páginas de Facebook para obtener información. También deseamos compartir los recursos disponibles del Departamento de Educación de Oregon en www.oregon.gov/ode/students-and-family/healthsafety/Pages/COVID19.aspx
