Mission focused

MISSION-FOCUSED

  • The Mission Statement is the Litmus Test.

  • All students are provided the opportunity and necessary support to engage in relevant, challenging work which contributes to their academic and social growth and development.

  • All staff, teachers and administrators are part of a larger learning community, working together to build collective capacity in order to provide a high-quality, relevant, equitable education for all.


Facilities planning process considerations determining priorities

FACILITIES PLANNING: PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS – DETERMINING PRIORITIES

  • They must be “mission-tested”

  • They must address a problem defined as follows:

    • Does the facilities work address an immediate or looming health, safety, maintenance or security issue? This will be addressed by the Building Conditions Survey(BCS).

    • Does the facilities work address a program issue or problem that has substantially compromised our capacity to provide our students the opportunity and necessary support to engage in relevant, challenging work which contributes to their academic and social growth and development?

    • Does the facilities work address a problem that has substantially compromised the capacity of all staff, teachers, and administrators to effectively and efficiently directly deliver or support the delivery of a high-quality, relevant, equitable education for all?


Facilities planning process considerations

FACILITIES PLANNING: PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS

The Role of the Building Conditions Survey

  • NYS Education Law (Section 155.1 Educational Facilities, Part a.4) and regulations require a Building Conditions Survey (BCS) to be conducted every five years.

  • The Building Conditions Survey purpose is to provide an overview of the general condition of each building the district owns and rank urgent and future replacements and renovations work identified by our Architects.

  • A separate state aid formula reimburses districts for part of the cost of this survey.

  • There is also a required Annual Visual Inspection (AVI). The BCS is not the AVI. However, the BCS will suffice for the AVI for the year in which the BCS is conducted.


Facilities planning process considerations1

FACILITIES PLANNING: PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS

The Building Conditions Survey includes:

  • Building Systems Conditions Ratings and Definitions:

    • Excellent: System is in new or like-new condition and functioning optimally; only routine maintenance and repair is needed

    • Satisfactory: System functioning reliably; routine maintenance and repair is needed

    • Unsatisfactory: System is functioning unreliably or has exceeded its useful life. Repair or replacement of some or all components is needed

    • Non-Functioning: System is non-functioning, not functioning as designed, or is unreliable in ways that could endanger occupant health and/or safety. Repair or replacement of some or all components is needed.

    • Critical Failure: Same as “NF” with the addition that the condition of at least one component is so poor that at least part of the building or grounds should not be occupied pending needed repairs/replacement or some or all components is needed


Facilities planning process considerations our extensive physical plant

FACILITIES PLANNING: PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS – OUR EXTENSIVE PHYSICAL PLANT

The District includes:

  • 12 district locations with over one million square feet of occupied space and roof area

  • 4 natural gas stand-by generators

  • 14 additional buildings/storage structures

  • 13 security camera systems with 25 DVR’s and over 200 cameras

  • 30 heating system boilers

  • Over 120 air handling, roof top, energy recovery units

  • Over 150 heating system pumps

  • Over 175 heating and domestic water pumps

  • Over 200 rooftop exhaust fans

  • Over 300 interior motors

  • Over 2,500 doors, locksets and associated door hardware

  • Over 3,000 windows and associated door hardware

  • Over 10,000 plumbing fixtures

  • Over 20,000 electrical fixtures and components


Facilities planning process considerations our extensive physical plant1

FACILITIES PLANNING: PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS – OUR EXTENSIVE PHYSICAL PLANT

  • 284 acres of property

    • 8 playgrounds

    • 21 interscholastic practice/playing fields

      • 5 premier interscholastic fields

    • 20 parking lots

      • Over 3 miles of roadway and walkway maintained

  • Work Orders

    • On average between 3,000 and 4,000 per year


Facilities planning process considerations2

FACILITIES PLANNING: PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS

What do we currently do?

  • Complete BCS every five years.

  • We take BCS seriously and approach it methodically/ thoughtfully to address the “unsatisfactories.”

  • All projects identified through this process are placed on a master list for future consideration and reviewed annually.

  • Summary of projects identified as Priority 1-3 in last BCS that are completed or scheduled to be completed before next BCS:


Facilities planning process considerations3

FACILITIES PLANNING: PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS

We take care of identified issues through our annual budget process through three areas:

  • Daily Maintenance

  • Maintenance Budget Projects

  • Transfers to Capital Fund

    • This has accounted for $1.445 million in each of the two previous year’s budgets. We plan to increase this to $2.535 million in 14-15.

    • Such a practice is not the “norm” among school districts. We believe in taking care of issues timely vs. deferring maintenance.

    • It drastically mitigates or even eliminates the need to bond for standard projects identified in the BCS.

    • A means to address program needs and enhancements identified by district administrators.


Facilities planning process considerations4

FACILITIES PLANNING: PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS

How do we Address our Identified Needs?

  • General Maintenance – included in the base operating budget.

    • e.g. Normal day-to-day wear and tear repairs within the buildings

  • Maintenance Budget Projects – separate listing is presented to BOE during budget process for inclusion in proposed budget within overall Maintenance Department section.

    • e.g. These are projects of programmed maintenance type or identified by building principal/supervisor

  • Small-Medium Size Capital Projects – separate listing is presented to the BOE during budget process for inclusion in proposed budget as an Interfund Transfer to the Capital Fund.

    • e.g. Projects typically over $10,000 that are aidable through the State Education Department that can be accomplished within a year of being approved by the Commissioner

  • Large Capital Projects – separately voted on bond issuances.

    • e.g. Projects of a larger magnitude that typically may need to be accomplished throughout the year or over a longer period of time and may impact the operations within the school building to varying degrees. Projects are also Building Aid eligible.

Maintenance budget projects

Maintenance BUDGET Projects

Proposed Maintenance Budget Projects for 2014-2015 school year total $170,000

This is an increase over 2013-14 budget ($20,000)

These projects are either not aidable (GR, MW & Maintenance Shop), require immediate attention or are typically minor enhancements/repairs to the buildings that are not easily aidable through a capital project because of cost thresholds or are required to be coupled with a larger project of like type.

Tax levy cap

Tax levy cap

Not really a “cap”

Sets a higher threshold for voter approval of budgets if proposed tax levy increase exceeds the “tax levy limit” - 60% or more would be required versus simple majority (more than 50%)

Tax levy limit calculated and will vary by district

Tax levy limit is not a limit – just a threshold for what level of voter support is required

See Tax Levy Cap Handout


Estimated tax levy cap for 2014 2015

ESTIMATED TAX LEVY CAP FOR 2014-2015

CAPITAL EXCLUSIONS FOR TAX LEVY CAP CALCULATION


Debt service philosophy

Debt Service Philosophy

Purchase with cash whenever fiscally sound

Interest cost savings

Debt issuance costs avoided

Building Aid is generated based on estimated debt service costs. With Transfers we don’t incur interest costs so the % of the project that is funded by Building Aid is increased

For example, a recent capital project funded with a Transfer to Capital was approx. 83% paid for by Building Aid, although our aid ratio is approx. 69%)

Limit length of borrowings as much as possible

Review outstanding debt regularly for refunding opportunities/interest recalibration waivers


Debt service philosophy1

DEBT SERVICE PHILOSOPHY

  • Review of Debt Service Schedule Handout

  • Bonds

    • Five Serial Bonds Outstanding

  • Installment Debt Leases for IT Equipment

    • Installment Lease-issued 2013-14
