On September 30, 2019, the Commission for Arkansas Public School Academic Facilities and Transportation (CAPSAFT) released the following rules for public comment:
- CAPSAFT Rules Governing the Facilities Master Plan (amended);
- CAPSAFT Rules Governing the Academic Facilities Distress Program (amended); and
- CAPSAFT Rules Governing the Academic Facilities Partnership Program (amended), including appendices "A" (Facility Manual--amended), "B" (Program of Requirements--repeal), and "C" (Project Agreement--amend).
(Please note that Appendix B is being repealed because the POR already is included in Appendix A, thus making Appendix B redundant).
A public hearing will be held concerning these proposed rules on October 24, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Arch Ford Education Building, Four Capitol Mall, Little Rock, Arkansas. Public comments also may be mailed to: Division of Elementary and Secondary Education, Office of Legal Services, Four Capitol Mall, Room 301A, Little Rock, AR 72201. Public comments also may be emailed to ADERulesComments@arkansas.gov.
The proposed rules are attached to this memo, and also may be found online at http://dese.ade.arkansas.gov/divisions/legal/rules/pending.
Public comments on the proposed rules will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. on November 1, 2019.
