Title 4 . Education and Early Development
Chapter 31 . (Repealed)
Section 21. Applications for grants for capital improvement projects

4 AAC 31.021. Applications for grants for capital improvement projects

(a) A school district, as the term "district" is defined in AS 14.11.135 , may apply for a capital improvement grant under AS 14.11.011 by September 1 of the fiscal year preceding the fiscal year for which the request is made. The application shall be made on forms prescribed by the commissioner and be accompanied by the school district's current six-year capital improvement plan prepared under 4 AAC 31.011, and the chief school administrator must certify that the application is submitted in accordance with law.

(b) Repealed 3/10/96.

(c) A grant application must include, as applicable, verification that

(1) the enrollment of the attendance area will reach the design capacity of existing school facilities within two years;

(2) the situation cannot be relieved by adjusting the boundaries of service areas and transporting the children to nearby schools;

(3) as demonstrated by commonly accepted demographic techniques resulting in population projections accepted as reasonable by the department, the proposed facility will reach and sustain design capacity within five years after the anticipated occupancy date; and

(4) repealed 4/17/98;

(5) repealed 4/17/98;

(6) insurance or a program of self-insurance exists under 4 AAC 31.200 - 4 AAC 31.225 and will be revised, if necessary, to include the proposed facility.

(d) If a school district wants to request a waiver of local contribution for a grant allowable under AS 14.11.008 , that district shall make a request in its grant application and include the basis for that request in that application.

(e) Using the criteria set out in 4 AAC 31.022(b) , the department will score each application and use the score to assign a priority ranking to the projects approved for eligibility. A school district may use the original application and its score for one year after application was filed if, for a school capital project identified in the district's six-year capital improvement plan,

(1) the school district specifies, in a letter accompanying the six-year plan, which, if any, of the project applications it wants the department to consider beyond the initial application period;

(2) the chief school administrator certifies in writing that the district's eligibility for any additional square footage associated with the project has not decreased; and

(3) for a facility or facilities that are a school capital project,

(A) the physical condition of the facility has not deteriorated so as to increase the project's cost to exceed the amount determined by application of the inflation factor under (f) of this section; and

(B) health and life safety conditions and code conditions have not changed so as to affect the project's score under 4 AAC 31.022(b) .

(f) If, under (e) of this section, a district requests use of its previous year's application during the second year after application was filed, the department will add an inflation factor based on an industry accepted method.

(g) If, under (e) of this section, a district requests use of its previous year's application during the second year after application was filed, the district may not appeal its priority ranking determined for that second year.
