Pursuant to A.R.S. § 5-2002(H), when a school district adds square footage to the district through the construction of a new school using Class A bonds, the School Facilities Board shall not provide funding to supplement the new school construction.

B. When a school district adds square footage to the district through the construction of a new school using either Class B bonds, or unrestricted capital outlay monies, the School Facilities Board shall not include the square footage of the new school in the gross square footage of the school district for purposes of calculating building renewal distributions pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2031 and for determining needs for additional square footage pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2011 and A.R.S. § 15-2041.

C. When a school district adds square footage to the district through the construction of a new school using Class A bonds, the School Facilities Board shall include the square footage of the new school in the gross square footage of the school district for purposes of calculating building renewal distributions pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2031 and for determining needs for additional square footage pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2011 and A.R.S. § 15-2041.

D. A school district that uses Class B bonds and/or unrestricted capital outlay monies to add or replace square footage at existing schools shall have the additional square footage or replacement square footage treated as follows:

1. A school district that adds square footage to an existing school with the use of Class B bonds or unrestricted capital outlay monies shall not have the additional square footage included in the determination of minimum adequate square footage pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2011(C), but the School Facilities Board shall consider the additional square footage for purposes of determining adequacy of the functional components of the school as specified in the Minimum School Facilities Guidelines set forth in R7-6-201 through R7-6-285.

2. A school district that both removes and adds square footage with the use of Class B bonds or unrestricted capital outlay monies shall not have the net additional square footage included in the determination of minimum adequate square footage pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2011(C), but the School Facilities Board shall consider the net additional square footage for purposes of determining adequacy of the functional components of the school as specified in the Minimum School Facilities Guidelines set forth in R7-6-201 through R7-6-285.

3. For purposes of calculating building renewal pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2031, replacement square footage constructed with Class B bonds or unrestricted capital outlay monies shall be included, but net additional square footage shall be excluded.

4. If square footage is replaced at an existing school with the use of Class B bonds or unrestricted capital outlay monies, the student capacity of the facility after completion of the project will be determined in the same manner as it would have been determined prior to the addition. If Class B bonds or unrestricted capital outlay monies are used to construct a complete replacement school, the student capacity of the facility once the project is completed will be based on the provisions of A.R.S. § 15-2011(C).

5. For purposes of this Section, replacement square footage is defined as square footage constructed with Class B bonds or unrestricted capital outlay monies that replaces existing square footage.

Upon review of the submitted schematic design, budget estimates and preliminary bid package, the Board's staff shall make a recommendation to the Board regarding the appropriateness of the school district to proceed with the additional square footage and the efficiency and effectiveness of the plan. The staff recommendation shall be based on whether the project is within the original scope and Board approved budget (including square footage and number of students), the project meets the building adequacy standards, initial comments from the local building authority and whether revised student population projections continue to justify the additional square footage. If the Board approves the project, the school district shall be authorized to proceed with the final bid package. Prior to authorization to contract the school district shall document that it has obtained local (city, county or equivalent) building department approval. For projects outside of the original scope and /or Board approved budget or that do not meet the minimum adequacy guidelines, the Board may instruct the school district to resubmit the project, or the Board may make an alternative decision. Local funds may be used by the school district in conjunction with the Board approved funding.

H. Upon receipt of bids by the school district, the Executive Director shall authorize the district to proceed with the contract if the school district has documented that it has obtained local (city, county or equivalent) building department approval, and the bid is within the original scope and Board approved budget, and meets the building adequacy standards. The Executive Director may make an alternative recommendation to the full Board.

I. The Board-approved funding for additional square footage shall be available to the school district for one year from the date of notification. The bid process shall be completed within the one-year period. The Board shall consider requests for an extension beyond the one year and may grant an extension for good reason.

J. The Board may modify or waive the requirements of this Section for good cause.

R7-6-503. Funding for Land

A. The School Facilities Board follows a three-step approval process for the funding of land that is classified as Step One - Justification of Need for Land; Step Two - Request to Purchase a Specific Site; and Step Three - Due Diligence. The executive director may deviate from the three-step approval process to meet other circumstances as they arise, such as purchasing state-owned land and condemnation and bring such recommendations to the full Board.

B. Step One is the initial request for land for new construction. A school district that currently owns land shall demonstrate that the district-owned property is not suitable for the needed new school in order for the school district to receive funding for the acquisition of land.

C. Step Two includes the following:

1. The school district shall provide a map of the district showing current schools and the projected student population, grade levels served and attendance boundaries in various locations in the district, which supports the location of the new school at the requested site. The school district shall also provide a listing of vacant parcels currently owned by the school district (including the size of each parcel and its location), describe the site selection process, explain why the site requested was chosen over alternative sites, and summarize any joint use provisions or other intergovernmental agreements related to the site. The school district shall also provide a legal description of the desired site, the size of the site and an estimate of the cost of the site. The school district may provide information on more than one site.

2. The Board shall make a decision regarding the site size for each site. The range of acreage table approved by the Board is provided to allow school districts some leeway in site selection. The school district shall provide special justification if the site size is not within the range shown on the range of acreage table. Allowances shall not be granted for additional acreage for limited use activities that are only remotely related to the teaching and learning enterprise. Limited use activities would include, but not be limited to, athletic fields that are only used for interscholastic competition rather than daily activities, and non-school related community functions. The site size will be based on the eventual size of the school, if expansion is planned. The school district may request a larger or smaller site if conditions require. The school district may purchase additional acres with local funds. School districts should give careful consideration to joint-use sites such as those which adjoin community parks and play grounds. The ranges indicated are not intended to dictate a minimum acreage if a joint-use agreement provides the school with access to adjoining public space.

3. If a school district needs monies to verify, gather and submit the information required in Step Three, the school district shall submit a cost estimate to the Board, and the Board shall approve or disapprove the request for monies. Rather than allocating monies to a school district to verify, gather and submit information required in Step Three, the Board may approve the staff of the School Facilities Board to contract directly for such services, in which case the contractors will be paid directly by the Board.

D. If the school district receives approval to proceed to Step Three, the following information about the site shall be acquired:

1. An appraisal of the land that documents that the proposed cost is at or below the fair market value.

2. Legal description of the land.

3. Level one environmental assessment, plus the following factors (if not included):

a. Hazardous materials

b. Archaeology

c. Endangered flora and fauna

d. Noise

e. Soil Conditions

f. Adjacent land owners and/or uses

4. Boundary and Topographical Survey

5. Drainage statement

6. Site development cost

7. Photographic survey (if required by planning and zoning departments)

8. Feasibility site diagram-conceptual study by a design professional illustrating proposed development of the site (based on the eventual size of the school, if there are plans for expansion), indicating:

a. Property lines and measurements

b. Setbacks, right-of-ways, and easements

c. Vehicular access and parking

d. Pedestrian and bicycle access

e. Building zone

f. Drainage concept

g. Utility routes or systems

h. Activity fields and courts

i. Limit-lines and calculation of usable area

j. Existing features to be demolished or preserved

k. Future expansion capability

E. Final distribution of monies to purchase the site may be made by the Board if Step Three reveals no serious problem with the site. If the actual cost of the site does not exceed the Board approved amount the Executive Director may make the final determination of site funding without further action by the Board. If monies were distributed to the school district to verify, gather and submit the information required based on a cost estimate, an adjustment for the actual cost shall be made at the time of the final distribution. The school district shall provide documentation to the Board of the actual expenditures from the monies provided and the actual closing costs within 60 days of the final distribution. Expenditures exceeding the amount provided pursuant to subsection (C)(3) of this Section require approval by the Board. If the site is rejected as a result of information gathered in Step Three, the school district may repeat Steps Two and Three with a new site.

F. The Board may modify or waive the requirements of this Section for good cause.

R7-6-504. Donations of Real Property

A. A school district seeking to acquire real property by donation pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2041 shall complete the school site and school facility donation information requirements form and submit the form to the School Facilities Board. The information requested on the form for land shall include, among other items, a district map identifying existing school sites and facilities, student population and the location of the donation. The information requested on the form for a facility shall include, among other items, the size of the facility, grade levels served and location. If all of the information required is not available and if a school district needs monies to verify, gather and submit the information required, it shall submit a cost estimate at the same time it submits the information that is available.

B. If all information is available, the School Facilities Board staff shall analyze the request to accept the donation and make a recommendation to the Board. If all information is not available, the School Facilities Board staff shall analyze the request on the basis of whether the school district should be awarded the funds necessary to complete the information gathering process, and shall make a recommendation to the Board. At the time the Board is making its decision, the staff analysis and recommendation shall be available to the School Facilities Board members and the applicant school district. The applicant school district may address the Board.

C. If the Board approval is to award funds necessary to complete the information gathering process, the district shall be notified by the Board Staff and upon acceptance may proceed to gather the additional information required. Once the additional information is submitted to the Board, the Staff shall analyze the request to accept the donation and make a recommendation to the Board as stated in subsection (B).

D. If the Board approves the district request to accept the donation, the Board staff shall notify the district. The distribution of 20 percent of the value of the accepted donation pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2041 shall be awarded to the school district upon notification to the Board that the donation has been accepted by the district. The district shall submit documentation of its governing board action and documentation that the property title has been transferred to the district. Upon receipt of this documentation Board staff shall be authorized to distribute the approved 20 percent amount.

E. If monies were distributed to the district to verify, gather and submit the information required based on an estimated cost, an adjustment for the actual cost shall be made at the time of the final distribution. The district shall provide documentation to the Board of the actual expenditures from the monies provided. Expenditures exceeding any amounts provided pursuant to R7-6-503(C)(3) shall require approval by the Board.

F. In determining whether the real property proposed for donation is at an appropriate school site, the School Facilities Board Staff analysis shall be based on the following:

1. Location of the proposed donation of real property.

2. District needs for additional student capacity.

3. District needs for additional land (for site donations only).

4. Usable acres proposed for donation, taking into consideration School Facilities Board adopted usable acreage requirements.

5. The ability of a proposed site donation to accommodate a school facility that meets the minimum adequacy guidelines (for site donations only), or the adequacy of a proposed school facility donation.

6. Estimated site development costs.

7. Age and condition of the real property (for facility donation only).

8. Portion of real property that can be used for academic purposes.

G. If the School Facilities Board Staff recommendation is to authorize the district to accept the donation, the Staff shall prepare a recommended 20 percent distribution amount. The 20 percent distribution recommendation will be based on the fair market value of the real property proposed for donation that is usable for academic purposes.

H. The Board may waive or modify the requirements of this Section for good cause.

R7-6-506. Providing Technical Assistance in the Form of Project Management

A. A school district that does not have the experience or resources to successfully oversee a new school construction project may request technical support from the Board pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2002(13) in the form of project management services.

B. The Executive Director may approve the project management request. Should the Executive Director deny the request, the school district has the right to appeal the decision to the Board.

C. The cost of the project management shall be made a part of the overall cost of the new school, and those funds shall be derived from the total allocation for the project provided by the School Facilities Board. Should the allocation of funds that the district receives pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2041 satisfy the base cost of the new school plus the cost of the project management, then the Board shall not provide any additional funds for project management services.

D. If the school district's request for project management services is approved, the school district shall agree to reimburse the Board from its allocated funds for the cost of any independent contractors that the Board uses to provide the project management services.

E. The Board may provide the school district with monies to pay for the project management services in addition to the monies the school district receives pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2041 provided:

ARTICLE 6. CONTINGENCY FUNDS

R7-6-601. Allocation and Use of Contingency Monies

A. A sum equal to a percentage of the construction bid shall be set aside as a contingency fund to cover the cost of unknown conditions that could arise during construction. The School Facilities Board shall set aside an amount equal to five percent of the base cost for new construction and ten percent of the base cost for renovation of a structure or system replacement to cover these potential costs. Contingency funds are not part of the construction budget and are to be used only if needed. For deficiency corrections projects, any contingency funds which are not used shall be returned to the deficiency corrections fund. For projects funded by the new school facilities fund, any contingency funds which are not used may be used by the school district in accordance with A.R.S. § 15-2041.

B. The mechanism that is used to spend contingency funds during construction is a "change order." There are three types of situations that generally require a change order:

1. An unknown condition that was not determined until after construction was started and that requires a change, deletion or addition to the construction contract.

2. The school district has determined to change the scope of work and add to or delete from the contract.

3. A change is required to correct a discrepancy between what the contractor bid and what the architect and owner intended. This type of change order could be determined an "error or omission" on the part of the architect. If so, the owner should pursue the architect's error and omissions insurance to recover the cots of the required change.

C. Change orders can be additive or subtractive to the construction contract and both should be used. All changes in the scope of the contract and the contract documents should be considered potential change orders. Change order should not be used to correct conditions known prior to or discovered during the bid process. These should be addendum items and made part of the bid.

D. The following conditions apply to the use of all contingency monies allocated to a specific project approved by the School Facilities Board. If the district wishes to issue change orders that do not comply with these rules, the associated costs shall be accounted for separately and not considered part of the approved project. In other words, they would need to be paid out of separate monies and would not be considered part of the approved project, even though they might be included in the same basic contract. These costs would be paid for using local funds.

1. The school district may use contingency monies only to cover change orders that are to correct unknown conditions.

2. Contingency funds may not be used to cover change orders for the other two types of situations discussed in subsection (B) above: the district has determined to change the scope of work during construction by adding components, or a change is required to correct a discrepancy created by the architect that could be considered an error or omission by the architect.

3. For deficiency correction projects performed pursuant to A.R.S. § 15-2021 only, the Executive Director shall have the discretion to authorize the use of contingency funds for expansion of scope, to accommodate low budget estimates, and for all other project related costs.

4. Contingency monies shall not be used to pay for "bid add alternates." These items are not part of the final approved project.

E. A school district whose deficiency correction projects are combined with the deficiency correction projects of one or more additional school districts pursuant to R7-6-401 shall have the contingency amount included as a percentage of the overall set of projects that have been grouped together for such purposes. The Executive Director shall have the discretion to use, transfer, and/or combine the contingency amounts for any projects within such a group to any other project within the group of projects. The Executive Director's adjustment authority pursuant to R7-6-401 shall be considered as a percentage or sum of the overall group of projects.

F. The Board may modify or waive the requirements of this Section for good cause.

E. "Security" means perimeter fencing surrounding the campus with lockable access gates with at least one automatic gate including card access as well as sight/audio, two-way communication with a central security office. The campus shall also have an accessible security office of at least 300 square feet per campus for visitor registration and multiple campus surveillance cameras strategically located around campus feeding video to the security office via monitors. The campus shall also have a fenced or walled play/physical education area for students in programs for preschool children with disabilities and kindergarten and students in grades 1 through 6. The requirement for a fenced or walled play/physical education area is met if the entire school is fenced or walled; otherwise, the sufficiency of this requirement is subject to review by the Board using the following criteria:

1. Amount of vehicular traffic near the school site;

2. Existence of hazardous or natural barriers on or near the school site;

3. The amount of animal nuisance near the school site; and

4. Visibility of the play/physical education area.
