Facility Assessment

School Site Issues


Facility Assessment

Pedestrian Access- Off-site

Paved sidewalks are located on the east side of Camino Cabra

There is no crossing guard at Camino Cabra – Only 2 students walk to school

Camino Cabra is very congested, especially in the morning, and generally unsafe for walking to school


Facility Assessment

Pedestrian Access - On-site

Pedestrian walkways to permanent buildings, portables area, and parking are paved

The accessible route from the parking lot is hampered by rough asphalt and damaged curb cuts

Handicap access to the park playground is limited by

Small landings

Narrow paths

Non code-compliant stairs

Paving between the main building and new wings is beginning to fail

Sand used to control ice creates slipping hazard when dry

Repairs are needed at trench drain cover


Facility Assessment

Vehicular Access

Both drives off Camino Cabra are in poor condition

The pick-up/drop-off lane needs to be resurfaced

Bus loading occurs at the same roadway used by all vehicles to exit the site

Vehicles drive over the shallow curb at the median, creating congestion

Better signage is needed to direct traffic

Pedestrians cross two lanes of traffic from the parking lot

The mailbox can easily be hit by a vehicle


Facility Assessment


Given the number of faculty and staff, there is enough parking

At 1.5 parking spaces per FTE 51 spaces are required. There are 87 standard spaces on site

Per the NM Building Code, 4 need to be accessible with 1 van space. There are 4 accessible spaces and 1 for vans

During special events vehicles park along the main roadway

There are 2 bicycle racks on site

There is no parking along Camino Cabra


Facility Assessment

Portable Buildings, Access and Condition

There are 2 spaces designated for portables north of the main building

During the evaluation there were no portables on site


Facility Assessment

Landscaping and Irrigation

The school is surrounded by naturally occurring Pinon trees and native grass

Shrubs are concentrated between the main building and classroom additions

Deciduous trees border the public park

Shrubs need pruning and shaping

Mulch needs to be replenished

Bubblers are used to irrigate trees and shrubs, district guidelines state drip irrigation is preferred


Facility Assessment


Drainage improvements are needed across the main playground to reduce mud

The retention pond looks deep enough to hold enough water to drown someone and should be protected
