Approve the Statement of Work for Tindale Oliver & Associates, Inc. to Conduct a Long Range School Planning Study

Tindale Oliver & Associates, Inc.,  a District authorized planning consultant selected through RFP #15069-MST for General Planning Services, has developed a well-respected, statewide methodology for Public School Long Range Planning Studies.  Hillsborough County has experienced high residential growth over the last two years, which in turn has increased student enrollment.  The spike in District growth has exacerbated the need to re-evaluate a number of directly connected subject areas with a holistic, big picture Public School Long Range Planning Study, which includes a Growth Management and Infrastructure Plan, and an associated Business Plan. 

This study will help guide and inform the fiscal and growth management decisions of the District by collecting, developing, and analyzing districtwide data related to school attendance boundaries, student enrollment projections, capital needs, operational practices, class size reduction requirements, land and construction costs, maintenance needs, school concurrency policies, current and potential funding sources, and student generation rates.  This all-encompassing study will assist the District in formulating data driven decisions for the 5, 10, and 20 year planning periods.   A final report will be generated by April 2017 from the proposed study period, which will span over an eight month period.

• Continuously improve processes and systems • 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 $97,651.00 will be available in the Districtwide Divisional Budget. For tracking purposes, the project number specific to this agenda item is 9999. As of Tuesday, August 23, 2016, the remaining balance less encumbrances for this line item equaled $570,148.93.
