This agenda item was recommended for discussion by Dr. Analee Maestas.  Chairman Garcia reminded board members that this item is not an action item requiring a vote and allowed public comment, which included:

  • Vincent Murphy, deputy county manager for Community Services for Bernalillo County, reviewed the history and current plans for the Rio Grande High School (RGHS) pool and requested that APS consider funding the renovation project.
  • Mr. Segall, a community neighbor, supported the renovations because it would support the community.
  • Trey Hammond, pastor of La Mesa Presbyterian Church, expressed concern regarding the renovations illustrating the need to retain the integrity of the APS Capital Master Plan (CMP).

 

Chairman Garcia asked Don Moya and Kizito Wijenje for clarification of the Capital Master Plan (CMP) process. Mr. Moya and Mr. Wijenje explained that the CMP process involves the administration making recommendations based on the condition of a facility to a non-partisan group, which is the CMP Review Committee.  This committee reviews projects based on specific criteria to make funding recommendations to the board. Project evaluation criteria includes supporting instructional goals.

 

Discussion regarding this agenda item included:

  • Clarification needed regarding the RGHS pool agreement and responsibilities of the county and APS
  • Clarification needed about the facility ownership and maintenance
  • Funding suggestions
  • CMP process and how unforeseen expenses and cost overrides are handled
  • Support for continuing the current CMP process

 

Dr. Maestas stated that funding has been secured from the county for the pool but recommended that APS consider provide additional funding for the pool because it supports the community.  Chairman Garcia asked the APS administration to meet with the county representatives to discuss this further.
