Amending the Established Guidelines for Distribution of Distressed County Funds
During the September 17, 2018 Quarterly meeting, the Staff of the SBA presented to the Authority a set of guidelines that were established in response to the Emergency Facility Repair or Replacement Fund for Financially Distressed Counties (the Distressed County Fund). These guidelines were developed by the Staff in conjunction with Superintendents of Counties on the WVDE watch list and have been adopted to provide a standard and a process for the distribution of these funds.
After fielding requests of varying degrees of emergency from eligible counties and revisiting the intent of the law as written in WV Code §18-9D-4d, the Staff recommends a modification to the guidelines to ensure the functionality of core spaces is included in the description of funding eligibility. The amended Guidelines for Distribution of Distressed County Funds are shown in ATTACHMENT F.
Webster County – Request for the Distressed County Funds
The Webster County Board of Education requests up to $54,110 for water infiltration and condensation repairs to the gymnasium space at Glade Elementary School. This elementary school core space has been closed indefinitely until repairs can be made. The issues stem a conditioning unit that has since been repaired but left damp, heavy insulation over the gym that has now sagged and separated from the roof causing additional condensation. The exterior walls and foundations have filled with water due to the ground sloping toward the facility and the loss of a gutter. The county proposes mitigation measures and repairs as outlined in ATTACHMENT G. Ken Hughart of the WV Department of Education Office of School Facilities and Mike Hall of the SBA have visited this site to verify the severity of need. Webster County is currently on the “watch list” of the West Virginia Department of Education.
I recommend that the Construction Committee approves to recommend to the Full Authority for Webster County to receive $54,110 for water infiltration and condensation repairs at Glade Elementary School from the Distressed County Fund.
