Madera County Office of Education is increasing our classroom facilities through Proposition 55 State Bonds. MCOE is currently building 13 classrooms with $6.8 million of state funds and designing 13 more classrooms with $1.1 million from Proposition 55 Bonds. Madera County is growing and MCOE is aggressively preparing for the future need of our students.
Our Norman M. Gould Educational Center is getting four new 1,700 square foot classrooms that include a kitchen, restroom, office, and therapy space. The new MUSD Desmond Middle and Nishimoto Elementary Schools are also getting two classrooms each of the same design by Mangini and Associates. Madera High South campus will have five MCOE owned classrooms in their Academic “B” building.
We have contracted with several architectural firms to design classrooms to match the existing look of our host schools. The host schools are Liberty High School, Oak Creek Intermediate, Oakhurst Elementary, Chowchilla Elementary, Sierra View Elementary, Pioneer Technical Center, and Gould Educational Center. In addition, we are modernizing part of the Gould Educational Center and the MCOE classrooms at Coarsegold Elementary.
The State Allocation Board and Office of Public School Construction approved funding for the Challenger Day School in Chowchilla and design funds for a multipurpose room at Enterprise Secondary School. Once designs are done and funding is received for all the projects, MCOE will have over $14 million in state funded facilities for our students.
