What does it feel like to have a disability? The Margaret Mead Elementary School PTSA wanted students to be able to empathize with their peers who face mobility, learning or other challenges. As part of Disability Awareness Month, they set up a Disability Awareness Fair with eight learning stations.
Construction Contracts and Change Orders
For each project involving site development, new building construction, or remodeling of existing buildings, the contract documents shall include general conditions, which are patterned after those published by the American Institute of Architects and which shall include all of the articles in the AIA Index
which are applicable to the project. All approved projects shall be constructed so to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. The superintendent or designee shall review the general conditions for each project when submitted by the architect and shall assume responsibility for these conditions being proper and sufficient to protect the Lake Washington School District.
The superintendent or designee with assistance from the architect shall be responsible to the superintendent and the board in seeing that all articles of the general conditions are observed during the construction period.
Change orders shall be approved by the architect and the superintendent or designee and whenever possible shall be recommended for board approval prior to proceeding with the work. In cases where approval is needed immediately in order to avoid a project delay, the superintendent or designee may approve change orders up to the amount of the contingency in the project budget. Such change orders shall be presented to the board for confirmation at the next regular meeting.
