Why a New District Office?

"During my career I have seen some humble district offices, but none more modest than the one we have here.  And while district offices should be low on everyone’s list of priorities, it’s time to rebuild ours," states Superintendent Skelly.

When Superintendent Skelly came to the District, he heard about leaking roofs, stale air, no meeting space, and the most challenging…our game of “musical bathrooms” when most of the bathrooms would not work. Well, with a clear vision for Peninsula High, a series of short term module buildings that had been housing staff for 30 years (not so short term), and rising construction costs, our team and Board had to do something about providing a District Office that was easily accessible, safe, and welcoming to our many families and hardworking staff.

The Design

The new District Office is designed to complement the architecture of the beautiful Performing Arts Center (PAC) and San Mateo High. It will be three stories, set more back from Delaware Street, and away from the Woodlake Condominiums. 

The internal spaces will be welcoming, open and a closer match to our needs. Our most public services (e.g. parent meetings, student registration, student services, etc.) will be on the first floor and easily accessible to our families.

Temporary Offices for Business Services and Student Services

This fall (2016), all Student Services functions will move to a temporary home at 839 Hinckley Avenue in Burlingame in preparation for construction. All other district teams will remain to endure the noise. More construction details to come.  Stay tuned!
