Keller — One in five schools in the Keller district is in need of significant upgrades and repairs, according to a comprehensive assessment of facilities.At the Oct. 17 board meeting, trustees got their first look at a lengthy report from SHW Group that identified about $102 million in improvements that ideally would be made in the next five years. The survey focused on campuses built before 2008 and covered mechanical systems, architectural and site conditions, handicapped accessibility, security and technology.“The numbers are kind of alarming of the things that need to be done in the next five to ten years,” said Superintendent Randy Reid. “Very little of this is urgent, but the more you leave it, the more it becomes urgent.”The report identified eight schools where the cost of upgrades and repairs exceed 20 percent of the value of the building (in descending order of need): Parkview Elementary, Willis Lane Elementary, Whitley Road Elementary, Keller High, Florence Elementary, North Riverside Elementary, Keller-Harvel Elementary and Bear Creek Intermediate. The buildings range in age from 15 to 40 years old.Terry Hoyle, principal architect for SHW Group, said that the report set 20 percent of a building’s value as a threshold for a facility in critical need of attention. For the district as a whole, the metric was different.Hoyle said, “Ideally, you want deferred maintenance to be 5 percent or less of a district’s value.”The report evaluated all the facilities in the district at about $833.8 million. For items that should be addressed this year, the district is “in great shape,” Hoyle said, with just 4.3 percent needed in improvements. Five years out, the cost of repairs versus the value of facilities rises to 12.2 percent. In ten years, the cost is 18.4 percent.For $102 million, the district could address all the needs. To get all campuses back into an acceptable range, according to SHW officials, would cost $68 million.Reid said that district officials plan to have a committee look at the report over the next several months, along with demographic data and curriculum needs, to develop recommendations for the next bond and for items that could be addressed in the annual budget.“The problem is that we’re such a low-funded district that it’s hard to get any of this in the budget,” Reid said.
