At a meeting on Thursday evening, South San Francisco Unified District School Board will vote on whether to approve a revised Master Plan for phases II and III of Measure J school improvements.
Superintendent Alejandro Hogan presented the plans at a meeting on Oct. 25, but the motion did not pass and received a vote of 2-2.
Trustee Shirlee Hoch had left the meeting due to illness before the vote. The board's student representative, Alex Moreno, at first appeared to have given the Master Plan 3 votes, but as a non-elected member, his vote cannot break a tie vote.
President Judy Bush and trustee Liza Normandy voted "no" because they wanted to see science classroom upgrades a higher priority and a more comprehensive explanation of other available funds that could be used for that purpose. Bush also inquired about why ADA standard bathrooms were not higher priority in the plans.
At tonight's meeting, Hogan will present a revised version of the plans that are expected to better address the board's concerns.
According to the presentation available on the district website, the updated plans integrate science classroom upgrades for Alta Loma Middle, El Camino High and Westborough Middle.
Bleachers are still included in the the proposed Master Plan, to cost $1,458,303 for South City High and $542,800 for El Camino.
The new plan puts Phase II and III expenditures respectively at $61.4 million and $75.1 million, whereas the earlier plan estimated $64.7 million and $68.7 million.
At Thursday's meeting the board will also hear a presentation from Skyline Elementary School principal Milissa Banister on the school's student achievment and API.
The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. at the South San Francisco High School Library Information Center at 400 B Street.
On Nov. 13 there will be a Measure J Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee meeting. The following school board meeting is scheduled for Dec. 13 and will be televised.
