LBUSD proposes campus improvements to Rogers MS, which includes the installation of: new HVAC systems with a new instrumentation and controls system, upgraded electrical systems, ADA-compliant access improvements, new drop ceilings in various classrooms, a campus wide fire alarm, digital intercom/clock and bell system upgraded, and the replacement of the turf play field with synthetic turf. Other improvements to the buildings receiving the HVAC upgrade include: new LED light fixtures and power outlets, new Extron AV systems, and new floor and paint finishes. The proposed project only involves the renovation of existing buildings and limited site work related to modifying ramps and pavement for ADA compliance. The project would have no effect on the capacity of the school. Construction activities are anticipated to start in January 2018, and the overall construction duration is anticipated to last approx. 12 months. The project would benefit the staff and students at the school.
