Lori-Ordway Peck, assistant superintendent of Business Services, will ask the board to adopt an emergency resolution to waive the requirement for competitive bidding for upgrades to electrical power at John Muir Middle School. The work is estimated to cost $200,000.
The work needs to be completed because the electrical capacity at the school is old and requires renovation, Ordway-Peck said. If approved, the district will install a whole new electrical panel in the school.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The board will likely approve the resolution and allocate $200,000 to pay for the necessary electrical upgrades, Ordway-Peck said.
Deputy Supt. Joel Shapiro will make a recommendation to the board to approve the California Department of Education 2008-09 Gifted and Talented Education Program application.
