Enhancing Safety and Security at Our School Sites
Posted by Kassie Swenson on 7/1/2022 9:00:00 AM
Various safety and security updates are happening across the district this summer. The 2020 Bond supports the creation of “secure vestibules” at school sites that don’t currently have one. These vestibules create a more secured space at the building’s entrance, resulting in greater safety and security. In this photo below, you’ll see construction occurring at Centennial Middle School to construct a secure vestibule and canopy at their front entrance. For a complete list of the various safety and security projects happening at each of our school sites, visit www.csd28j.org/2020Bond, scroll down to “Projects for Each School”, and click on the school.

Q & A with Scott Rose
Posted by Allison Macy-Steines on 2/18/2022 8:35:00 AM
Centennial School District has received countless updates and changes at its schools, thanks to the passage of the 2020 bond. Some of this work has included extensive roof remodeling and repairs, site drainage updates, mechanical improvements, resurfaced tracks, refinished gyms, and interior and exterior renovations.
Recently, we interviewed the person who’s helping make many of these positive changes a success! Scott Rose works for R&C Management LLC and is the Owner’s Representative for Centennial School District. He has been with the district since September 2020. He works daily to support bond projects and construction, and to help ensure that the promises we make as a district come to fruition for our students and school community.
Below is the interview with Scott:
How many years of experience do you have in school construction? 33 years – 7 years as an Owner’s Representative, then 21 years on the architectural side, and now 5 years back as an Owner’s Representative.
When did you start your current role working for the Centennial School District? September 2020
Why is it important to have an Owner’s Representative/Project Manager for a school construction bond? It is critical to bring an experienced individual or team on board who has completely ran school projects from the pre-bond planning through to the close-out and warranty phases as they can put together viable work plans and know what to anticipate.
What are you most looking forward to in the months ahead with Centennial’s 2020 Bond projects? The equitable and celebratory transformation of Oliver Elementary School into a Middle School.
What would you share with a student who’s interested in going into the construction field? I would suggest they experience all parts of a project – planning ,design, and construction. I suggest they buy materials, run against a budget and schedule, and critically review their own work. By experiencing all the fun and challenging aspects of a project, only then will they be able to see from the other person’s perspective and become an empathetic partner in the process.
What’s your favorite hobby or activity? I enjoy volunteering as a resource for caregivers that are caring for loved ones. My wife passed away from dementia, and I continue to help others caring for their loved ones.
What’s your favorite food? I enjoy authentic Mexican food – especially the handmade tamales in the summer from a local farmer’s market near me.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given? My wife told me to slow down and enjoy the ordinary moments of life, until they become extraordinary.
