Agenda Item #43
FS-2 Galaxy Elementary School Project Modification
The Galaxy ES Modernization project team, with the Board's support, wanted to pursue goals over and beyond those of a typical elementary school. These goals included, but were not limited to, LEED platinum certification, a Wonderment Center and a green roof. A committee was established to raise the funds needed to meet these goals at no additional cost to the Board. To date, $865,948 has been raised which includes $750,000 received from the Quantum Foundation. This is sufficient for the Wonderment Center, green roof, and several of the credits needed toward LEED platinum certification. November 20, 2012 Board items FS-1 and FS-2 are requesting authorization to use the funds raised to date for the design and construction of these items.
The fundraising committee is still pursuing other donations. It is anticipated that additional funds or in-kind contributions will be secured and this will provide the opportunity to earn additional credits towards obtaining LEED platinum certification.Description
