    • The district's conditional approval
    • Project is conditionally approved subject to the following:
      • Form steering committee: staff, parents, students, and neighbors.
      • Create reasonable overall project budget/goals.
      Design steps
      • Competitively select a design consultant to develop schematic and construction documents.
      • Consultant will need to provide a certificate of insurance.
      • Designer should develop two to three concepts.
      • District will review concepts and let us know if there are any unacceptable elements.
      • Steering committee presents concepts, with budget estimates to community.
      • Steering committee will select preferred option, based on school and community feedback.
      • District will review preferred option.
      • District must sign-off on this concept/schematic plan prior to designer proceeding with construction documents.
      • District will review construction documents at 50% and 95% completion.
      • District will provide bid documents, the format and process of which is based on the estimated size of the project.
      Continued on next slide
    • Conditional approval (continued)
      • Once funding is in hand for purchasing the playground equipment (e.g., under contract for grants), you may proceed with issuing a Request for Proposal for play equipment. Format and process for bidding is based on the estimated size of the project as well as the source of funding.
      • Meanwhile, you can begin to survey your school and neighborhood communities to begin to determine what types of equipment activities would complement existing playground resources at your school and in your community.
      • Prior to issuing an invitation to submit bids, all funding must be in hand based on architect’s estimated cost of the project (e.g., grant contracts in place, pledges committed.)
      • Bid documents will outline insurance and bonding requirements.
      • Bid documents will also include safety and security requirements, such as a temporary construction fence and when contractors may work on the playground.
