Approve Change Order No. Five for Building Controls at Sickles High School
The addition of classroom space is underway for Sickles High School to alleviate overcrowding and accommodate future growth.  The current project scope for Sickles High School includes space for 300 students and repairs to existing stairs and handrails throughout the school.  On May 2, 2017, the Board appointed Ranon & Partners, Inc. and Creative Contractors, Inc. to provide design and construction management services.

Due to the expansion of this facility, it is now necessary to provide a new Building Controls System throughout the entire campus with the exception of Buildings 8 and 32.  The Policy requires that normal change order procedures be followed after issuance of a CCD. As the cost of the change order exceeds $100,000, Board approval is required.
• Establish a strong foundation of financial stewardship • Demonstrate "best practices" in all aspects of safety: student, employee, visitor, facility, transportation, and health • Construct and maintain facilities that create an environment conducive to teaching and learning
Funds in the amount of $9,652,251.00 will be available in the Impact Fees and Local Millage funds. For tracking purposes, the project number specific to this agenda item is 8618 / 8219. As of Friday, April 6, 2018, the remaining balance less encumbrances for this line item equaled $5,102,242.77.
