(b) A facility to house and support the education program must meet the following criteria:

(1) the facility was planned in accordance with 4 AAC 31.020 and 4 AAC 31.030(c) ; and

(2) for a capital improvement project grant application submitted to the department before January 1, 1996, nonassignable space may not exceed 25 percent of the total space, except that the department will, in its discretion, grant a variance of up to 35 percent of total space in small schools in remote areas if it can be demonstrated that the variance is in the best interest of the state and the district; and

(3) base square foot allowable must be used for educational purposes for at least 75 percent of the scheduled school day.

(c) The department will, in its discretion, deny a request for debt retirement under AS 14.11.100 or limit its approval to the costs for that portion of a facility which complies with the provisions of this section.

(d) The costs of planning, design, or construction of an otherwise approved facility are not eligible for debt retirement if they are incurred for or arise out of

(1) costs of change orders, contract amendments, contractor's claims, or other modifications that enlarge the scope of a project, or that increase the total cost of the project budget above an amount that is the lesser of the amount approved by the voters at the bond election required under AS 14.11.100 (j), the amount approved by the department, or the initial contract amount, except for unavoidable or unforeseeable circumstances that are not the result of imprudent management;

(2) the cost of repairing or replacing items that the department determines are not essential to operation of the physical plant or not normally scheduled for routine maintenance or replacement unless the repair or replacement extends the useful life of the building and the cost exceeds $100,000; or
