This project will provide needed modifications to specific areas of restroom facilities. A study was conducted in FY 2004 to evaluate restrooms for all schools that were built or renovated before 1985. Schools on the moderniation list with either planning or construction funding in the six-year CIP were excluded from this list. Ratings were based upon visual inspections of the existing materials and fixtures as of August 1, 2003. Ratings also were based on conversations with the building services managers, principals, vice principals, and staffs about the existing conditions of the restroom facilities. The numeric rating for each school was based on an evaluation method using a preset number scale for the assessment of the existing plumbing fixtures, accessories, and room finish materials. An FY 2010 appropriation was approved to address the remaining schools identified on the list for restroom renovations. In FY 2010, a second round of assessments were completed, which included a total of 110 schools, including holding facilities. An FY 2011 appropriation was approved to begin the renovations of the schools identified in the second round of assessments. Based on the expenditures shown above, the first 71 schools are proposed for renovation in the FY 2011-2016 CIP. An FY 2012 appropriation was approved to continue this project. An FY 2013 appropriation was approved to continue the renovations of restroom facilities. An FY 2014 appropriation was approved to continue this project. An FY 2015 appropriation was approved to provide restroom renovations for school identified for this project. BY FY 2018, based on the expenditures shown above, all 110 schools assessed will be completed. The list of approved restroom renovations is shown in Appendix G of the FY 2015 Educational Facilities Master Plan.
