Bond Program Virtual Community Outreach Presentations
Posted on 07/21/2020
The Davis Joint Unified School District invites you to view the Virtual Community Outreach Presentations for three of our Bond Projects currently in progress at Birch Lane Elementary, Emerson and Da Vinci Junior Highs and Korematsu Elementary. You can view each presentation at www.djusd.net/bond/outreach and provide your feedback to facilityplanning@djusd.net. Open comment period will close on Sunday, July 26. We look forward to hearing from you.

Birch Lane Elementary
Design planning is now under way for a new Birch Lane Elementary multipurpose room (MPR) which is tentatively scheduled to be completed by Summer 2022. The new multipurpose facility will include an open space to accommodate assembly seating for the entire school (up to 650 students). This new and improved space will include a stage, music room, warming kitchen, staff, student and all gender restrooms, as well as utility infrastructure improvements. The building design will be identical to that designed for the César Chávez, North Davis, and Willett Elementary Schools.


Emerson and Da Vinci Junior Highs

The first series of projects funded by the Davis Joint Unified School District (DJUSD) Bond Program will include the construction of new science labs at the Emerson/Da Vinci Junior High Schools campus. Each classroom will be 1,440 square feet and will include eight dedicated lab stations as well as flexible furniture to support lecture and small group instruction. In addition to the new science labs, two dedicated science preparation rooms and student/staff restrooms will be provided. Project completion is anticipated in Spring 2021.

Korematsu Elementary
Design planning is now underway for the relocation of a portion of the existing preschool programming from the Valley Oak campus to the Korematsu Elementary campus. This movement will provide new opportunities by creating an all new preschool campus at Korematsu Elementary School. These new buildings are tentatively scheduled to be built on the west side of campus, near the parking lot off of Loyola Drive. While two preschool classes will remain at the Valley Oak campus, this new preschool facility construction will increase the total number of DJUSD preschool classrooms by two. Included in this project is a proposed expanded parking lot and student drop-off/pick-up area that would be available to students campus-wide. This Bond project may be completed as early as Fall 2021/Winter 2022.
