The SRVUSD's Facilities Oversight and Advisory Committee (FOAC) has already approved plans to replace the Danville school's old rundown pool with a larger one with modernized equipment and required American with Disabilities Act (ADA) upgrades, paid for through the district's Fund 21 local building fund.

"The existing (MVHS) swimming pool was completed in the spring of 2000. It is in a state of decline and needs extensive repairs and updates to remain safe and compliant with current codes," district staff said in a report to the board. "Staff recommends the board consider replacing the old pool with a new larger pool."

District staff added that the scope of the project includes replacing the entire pool deck and pool plaster surfaces, updating pool equipment, adding ADA compliant features and other modernizing features.

Staff have also previously considered renovating the existing pool for $3.2 million to ensure that it is safe to use for students, but found that the extra $1.5 million new one may provide more of a benefit to the school.
