Approve Reorganization and Redirection for the Operations Division and Project Administrator Job Description

The utmost commitment and vision of the Operations Division is quality, safety, program management, and cost-effectiveness of all construction and maintenance performed in our district. 

In order for this to be accomplished, a realignment of our construction team is necessary.  This will involve a readjustment of various accounting positions, as well as the addition of two Project Administrators.  Making these vital changes will create an "owner" team to support the pooling of knowledge and experience of many different groups, such as architects, designers, engineers, contractors, and subcontractors.  This team will have a close connection with these groups to meet the deadlines and to accomplish the overall goals of each project.  Only by a collaborative approach can our district buildings meet today's and tomorrow's needs for our schools. 

The attached reorganization worksheet identifies the areas addressed.

• Recruit, support, and retain a highly effective and diverse workforce • Develop, recognize, and reward employees • 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
This reorganization will result in a savings to the District of $35,298.56.
