The Evergreen School District’s Operations Department exists to support the goals of Evergreen’s Strategic Plan through safe and well maintained facilities, efficient infrastructure and student oriented programs. The Operations Department consists of Child Nutrition Services, Grounds, Maintenance, Purchasing, Transportation and the Measure M bond program. Each member of our team has unique skills that they proudly use to provide valuable services to students and the community of Evergreen.
Measure M (Bond)
Measure M was passed by Evergreen voters on November 4, 2014. Measure M is meant to provide a safe, modern learning environment that supports academic achievements by upgrading and constructing classrooms and hands-on science and technology labs and restrooms, increasing campus security and improving overall energy efficiency.
Bond fund expenditures are monitored by a Citizens Oversight Committee that meets once per quarter. View more information on the Citizens Oversight Committee's web page including future meeting dates.
LEAD TESTING AT OUR SITES
Pursuant to the Lead Sampling in Schools Program announced in January 2017 by the State Water Resources Control Board – Division of Drinking Water, The Evergreen Elementary School District requested that the San Jose Municipal Water Company commence the survey and testing at our school sites under their service. The Evergreen Elementary School District is pleased to inform our community that all samples taken did not have detectable levels for lead. The CA State Water Resources Control Board released an online map that shows which public schools in California have had their drinking water tested for lead. You can find our sites on the their map and the results.
Facilities Advisory Committee
The Facilities Advisory Committee was created by the Board of Trustees to ultimately deliver a set of recommendations to the Board of Trustees as to how it might maximize the use of its facilities to both serve the community and perhaps generate revenue.
