At the December 14, 2017 meeting, the LPS Board of Education honored the district's Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC) members Sandy Schell, Brian Bostwick, Bill Canterbury and Bob Colwell for their work with the 2013 Bond Program. The committee monitored the progress of the improvements being made during the bond construction program, reported to the Board of Education on a quarterly basis about the status of the program and explored ways to stretch bond dollars as far as possible.

Beginning with their first monthly meeting on April 16, 2014, the committee would meet with the Program Management Team to review progress, participate in scheduled site visits during construction and review with the Program Management Team any anticipated revisions to the master schedule of projects. They attended 21 committee meetings and 15 Board of Education meetings to present their updates.

During their tenure, the CBOC oversaw 87 million dollars of bond money distributed through 27 bid packages. This represented 78 unique projects, including:

  • Replacing 95% of the district's univents – classroom HVAC systems – to provide a better air distribution and a quieter classroom environment;
  • Installing new security infrastructure at all facilities, including additional cameras and motion detectors, along with a state-of-the-art security control room at the ESC;
  • Installing new IT infrastructure at all locations, including designated, secure equipment rooms and increased device capability district-wide;
  • Updating fire alarm systems at most facilities;
  • Implementing a district-wide mass notification system;
  • Replacing 60% of the district’s roofs;
  • Adding new kitchen serving lines at 5 schools;
  • Implementing district-wide room numbering and wayfinding signage – now uniform throughout district, a huge benefit to first responders and any visitors to our schools;
  • Completing needed additions and remodels at multiple schools and facilities:
    • Littleton High School – new athletic complex and theatre remodel
    • Centennial Academy of Fine Arts Education – new music room within existing footprint
    • Carl Sandburg Center for the Sciences – new science classroom
