EXHIBIT A

LAFAYETTE SCHOOL DISTRICT BOND PROJECT LIST

 

The Board of Trustees of the Lafayette School District evaluated the District’s critical facility needs over an 18 month period in 2014-2016, including safety issues, repair and renovation needs, enrollment trends, class sizes, instructional best practices, changing education/information technology needs and other factors, in developing the scope of capital projects to be undertaken and funded through the proposed bond program. Prior to preparing the Project List, the District conducted a comprehensive facilities assessment, receiving input from teachers, staff, parents, community members and the public. The Board concluded upon this comprehensive 18 month study involving numerous meetings held in public, that the District’s most critical facilities needs must be addressed immediately in order to maintain the local quality of education; and further, that the longer the District waits to address these needs, the more pressing and expensive to repair its facilities needs will be. The District’s Project List therefore includes:

The listed projects will be completed as needed at a particular school or facility site according to Board-established priorities, and the order in which such projects appear on the Bond Project List is not an indication of priority for funding or completion. Each project is assumed to include its share of the election and bond issuance costs, furniture, equipment, architectural, engineering, inspection and similar planning and testing costs, program management, staff training expenses and customary contingency, unforeseen conditions revealed by construction, renovation or modernization (including plumbing or gas line breaks, dry rot, seismic and structural deficiencies, etc.), and escalation for unforeseen design and construction costs. In addition to the listed projects stated above, the Project List also includes the acquisitions of a variety of instructional, maintenance and operational equipment, including

 

the reduction or retirement of payment of outstanding lease obligations and interim funding incurred to advance fund projects from the Project List, payment of the costs of preparation of all facility planning, facility studies, assessment reviews, facility master plan preparation and updates, environmental studies (including environmental investigation, remediation and monitoring), design and construction documentation, demolition and temporary housing and storage of dislocated District activities caused by bond projects.

 

The budget for each project is estimation and may be affected by factors beyond the District’s control. The final cost of each project will be determined as plans are finalized, construction bids are awarded and projects are completed. Based on the final costs of each project, certain of the projects described above may be delayed or may not be completed. Demolition of existing facilities and reconstruction of facilities scheduled for repair and upgrade may occur, if the Board determines that such an approach would be more cost-effective in creating enhanced and operationally efficient campuses. Necessary site preparation/restoration and landscaping, may occur in connection with new construction, renovation or remodeling, or installation or removal of relocatable classrooms, including ingress and egress, removing, replacing, or installing irrigation, utility lines, trees and landscaping, redirecting fire access, and acquiring any necessary easements, licenses, or rights of way to the property.

 

The  allocation  of  bond  proceeds  may  be  affected  by  the  District’s  receipt  of  State matching funds and the final costs of each project. In the absence of State matching funds, which the District will pursue to reduce the District’s share of the costs of the projects, the District may not be able to complete some of the projects listed above. Alternatively, if the District obtains unexpected funds from non-bond sources with respect to listed projects, such projects may be enhanced, supplemented or expanded to the extent of such funds. Whenever specific items are included in the list, they are presented to provide an example and are not intended to limit the generality of the broader description of authorized projects.
