Newark Unified School District
In May of 2018 the NUSD Board of Trustees passed a STEAM resolution setting in motion a vision to reinvent the school experience for the entire TK-12 district. Aedis is charged with helping the district implement this transformation beginning with an update to the 2011 facilities master plan (FMP). The FMP update will include current facilities maintenance needs, an assessment of current STEAM educational effectiveness district-wide, and site plans, strategies, and cost estimates that chart a course forward, preparing the community for a future bond.
