Danville – The San Ramon Valley Unified School District Board of Education recently approved the preliminary design for the District’s newest elementary school in the Dougherty Valley community of east San Ramon. The new school is being funded through Measure D, the $260 million school facilities bond passed by local voters in November 2012.

“We are very excited to already have a preliminary design for this school,” said Superintendent Mary Shelton. “Thanks to the generosity of our community and a unique partnership with the City of San Ramon and Shapell Homes, we can continue to move forward with our plans to help alleviate the enrollment crunch that exists in the Dougherty Valley while also providing a state-of-the-art elementary school in a beautiful neighborhood setting.”

The new school will be built to accommodate approximately 830 kindergarten through 5th grade students, and will be situated on a 7.4 acre site located approximately 1/2 mile southwest of the Dougherty Station Community Center and Library in a yet-to-be developed area of the Dougherty Valley (site is adjacent to a future 30-acre community park).

The school, which is projected to open Fall, 2015, is being designed by Quattrocchi Kwok Architects, and will feature two 2-story classroom buildings, a comprehensive multi-use building and a large playfield equipped for soccer and softball.

“This school is being designed and built with the same high standards that we have come to enjoy with all of our new schools in the Dougherty Valley community,” said Gary Black, Assistant Superintendent for Facilities and Maintenance.

The designation of the land is a result of a three-way partnership between the City of San Ramon, Shapell Homes and SRVUSD. Shapell Homes is providing the land to the School District, with the play fields also serving as permanent parkland for the City of San Ramon. This partnership resembles the shared joint use cooperative between the City and the School District that exists at all of the other school sites in San Ramon, and has become a model for other communities.

The next steps include submitting the design plans to the California Department of Education and California Division of State Architect.

Design - New Dougherty Valley Elementary School

Design - New Dougherty Valley Elementary School
Developer Built Schools Enhance New Community Developments
by Terry Koehne, SRVUSD Community Relations Director
Located in the new residential communities of Gale Ranch and Windemere in the Dougherty Valley, is a new approach to the lengthy process and high cost of building and funding new schools in California - have the developers finance and construct new schools. Very few schools in California have been built in a collaborative effort between the school district, developer, community, and the state. Because of the eventual construction of more than 11,000 homes in the Dougherty Valley (located in east San Ramon), the San Ramon Valley Unified School District will have eight such developer built schools.
Shapell Industries and Windemere BLC (Brookfield, Lennar and Centex) have completed construction of four new elementary schools (Coyote Creek, Hidden Hills, Live Oak and Quail Run). The first middle school in the Dougherty Valley, Windemere Ranch, opened in 2005, and the second middle school, Gale Ranch, opened in August 2008.
"This is a win-win situation for us and the school district," said Kevin Pohlson, Vice President of Land and Planning representing Windemere BLC. It is exciting for us because we can design the schools to complement the homes around them and the overall feel of the community."
The enormous task of constructing the new Dougherty Valley High School for 2200 students was a major priority for the district and developers. Shapell Industries and Windemere BLC worked together on the Dougherty Valley High School project, located at the corner of Bollinger Canyon and Albion Road. The school opened in 2007 with 9th and 10th grade students only, and expanded to grades 9-12 in 2009.
"The collaborative process that allows residential developers to build public schools works in our district due to a number of factors," according to Margie Brown, Assistant Superintendent of Facilities Development. "The district's Facilities staff oversees the entire process from inception through completion. The District selects a qualified, experienced school architect, ensuring that our educational specifications and equipment/material standards are met through a design committee process. More importantly, during construction, our staff closely monitors the progress and quality of construction, ensuring the school is built to last and opens on time."
Additionally, one more elementary school opened in 2009 - Creekside Elementary (located in the Tassajara Valley's new Alamo Creek development). If all schools are ultimately built out to their master planned capacities, these schools will accommodate nearly 8,000 students.
