Three Pleasanton Unified School District campuses have fortified onsite security for the new school year with new 8-foot-tall black wrought-iron fencing that was recently installed as part of a $922,600 project funded by Measure I1 bond revenue.
Crews began erecting new fencing at Fairlands Elementary, Mohr Elementary and Harvest Park Middle schools in April.
Work wrapped up recently, according to PUSD spokesman Patrick Gannon, and the new fences have also allowed Fairlands to expand their outdoor play areas for students while also keeping them safe.
The fencing project utilized funds from the facilities bond Measure I1 that voters approved in 2016. It represented the first Measure I1 project with visible results for the public to see; other Measure I1-funded improvements like the new HVAC at Pleasanton Middle School and new network cabling and power management at Amador Valley High School are less prominent.
