On Tuesday December 9th the SRVUSD school board is scheduled to vote on a modernization project at Stone Valley Middle School which will replace the current 1-story campus with a single 2-story classroom building. The funds for this project have already been allocated by the passage of Measure D in 2012. The school has been in dire need of this modernization for years. The school board has also been presented with a 1-story design that will meet the educational needs of the students, fit within the budget (and may actually be cheaper), add a much desired student quad, and have the same number of classrooms and capacity for students.

Please sign this petitions if:

-You are concerned that a 2-story building does not fit the character and integrity of a 1-story neighborhood in Alamo


-You are concerned about congestion in the hallways, since all the classrooms will open into an interior hallway which will only be 12 feet wide. And that is if there are no lockers in the hallways.


-You are concerned about student safety going up and down staircases in between classes, especially since the width of the staircases is only proposed to be 6 feet, 6 inches wide


-You are concerned that students can go for multiple class periods without getting any fresh air, since the hallways are inside the building


-You feel that being on the 2nd story of a classroom building would jeopardize student safety in the event of an emergency or evacuation


-You are concerned that the 2-story design is being based upon construction of schools in new housing developments in San Ramon, which is a vastly different community than the long-established neighborhoods in Alamo


-You are concerned that the district has intentionally kept details of this project from the community


-You are concerned that the 2-story design will create space on campus for potential further expansion and increased enrollment
