The 2020 sales surtax plan includes structured cabling for educational technology at Creel Elementary School. The scope of work includes electrical and mechanical upgrades in support of the technology project.

Heard Construction, Inc. has submitted a Guaranteed Maximum Price in an amount not to exceed $857,727.31 under their continuing contract for design build services based on a Design Criteria Package (DCP) prepared by District staff.  Administration and permitting costs have been previously budgeted. The project is funded through 2020 sales surtax budgeted for  educational technology.

The Independent Citizens Oversight Committee approved the recommendation at their August 17, 2022 meeting to reallocate 2020 sales surtax year 2 educational technology funds ($533,946) from computers to structured cabling ($425,000 to the Creel structured cabling project and $108,946 to upcoming structured cabling projects). 

Board approval is required for purchase orders over $50,000. The standard agreement template has been used, which does not require legal review.
