Vermont School Construction Planning Guide.
Vermont State Dept. of Education, Montpelier.
This guide for Vermont administrators beginning a school construction project is to be used in conjunction with Vermont State Board of Education Rules for Capital Construction and is not intended to be used in isolation or to supersede any other agency rules for school construction. The document is not a comprehensive summary of such rules; rather, its intent is to identify key state agencies, and the stage or stages in the development of a school project at which each agency should be consulted. Described are the procedures that school officials should follow in the development of a project. If these procedures are adhered to, the Vermont Department of Education will coordinate the preliminary review functions of all the relevant state agencies so that a project receives the necessary permits and approvals as expeditiously as possible. Guidelines are organized in the following areas: (1) the process; (2) professional assistance, construction methods, and the bidding process; (3) suggested procedures for school boards; (4) roles of the different state agencies; (5) other construction issues; (6) capital outlay formula; and (7) applications. (Nine appendices address developing a facility analysis, space needs survey, system for rating proposed capital construction projects, developing educational specifications, preliminary review, developing enrollment projections, site inspections, clerk-of-the-works, and audit information.)
