Description

June 2010 Dear AISD Friends and Family, As representatives of the Community Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC), we are pleased to share with you the results of the recent Bond Programs Surveys. Thank you to those who responded to the survey – your feedback is important to the implementation of current and future bond programs and we truly appreciate your participation. The annual surveys, administered to parents, teachers and staff at campuses with recently completed renovations and improvements, allow us to receive feedback from the community on the progress of the 2004 and 2008 Bond Programs at an individual facility level. Once the survey is complete, AISD staff, contractors and the CBOC go through a deliberate process to review and respond to the feedback provided by the community. The results are first compiled into a report for the review of a subcommittee of the CBOC. After reviewing, the committee meets with AISD staff, including AISD Construction Management Director Curt Shaw, to analyze and discuss on a campus-by-campus basis the specific feedback addressed in the survey. AISD project managers for each facility are informed of any concerns and work with contractors and staff at campuses to resolve the issues. The feedback from the surveys is being used not only to address any current issues but to also know what to be aware of as we continue to work on bond program projects and plan for future renovation and improvement ...

Dear AISD Friends and Family,


As representatives of the Community Bond Oversight Committee (CBOC), we are pleased to
share with you the results of the recent Bond Programs Surveys. Thank you to those who
responded to the survey – your feedback is important to the implementation of current and
future bond programs and we truly appreciate your participation.

The annual surveys, administered to parents, teachers and staff at campuses with recently
completed renovations and improvements, allow us to receive feedback from the community
on the progress of the 2004 and 2008 Bond Programs at an individual facility level.

Once the survey is complete, AISD staff, contractors and the CBOC go through a deliberate
process to review and respond to the feedback provided by the community. The results are
first compiled into a report for the review of a subcommittee of the CBOC. After reviewing, the
committee meets with AISD staff, including AISD Construction Management Director Curt
Shaw, to analyze and discuss on a campus-by-campus basis the specific feedback addressed
in the survey. AISD project managers for each facility are informed of any concerns and work
with contractors and staff at campuses to resolve the issues.

The feedback from the surveys is being used not only to address any current issues but to
also know what to be aware of as we continue to work on bond program projects and plan for
future renovation and improvement projects.

Please take time to review the following documents, included is a comprehensive report on the
number of responses per campus, results of quantifiable data, and feedback from AISD on
your comments organized by campus.

AISD Bond Programs Surveys Feedback
BEDICHEK MIDDLE SCHOOL
 
The following issues were identified in the Bond Programs Survey concerning the renovations at
Bedichek Middle School. To maintain confidentiality, these issues have been compiled without using
any participant’s exact comment. The feedback on specific issues outlined below was provided by
AISD staff and the project manager for renovations at your campus. Comments relating to topics
outside of the scope of the bond programs are not addressed in this feedback.

Survey participant comments are identified in bold and are immediately followed by AISD feedback
on each comment.


Not Meeting Needs/Additional Needs

• The metal tread moldings with grooves on the stairs are potentially unsafe and should be
addressed.

The scope of work under the 2004 Bond Program did make some repairs to the stair nosings
where the concrete had broken away from the metal nosing. However, the repairs were limited
to the west exit stairs from the west cafeteria corridor and the south exit stairs near the kitchen.
Although no more areas existed where the concrete was missing from around the nosing, many
nosings are worn on all the remaining stairways and their replacement has been documented as
a project to be considered for inclusion in a future bond program. The nosings seem to "grab"
the shoe due to the excessive wear.

• The heating, ventilation and air conditioning system needs renovations and cleaning.

The HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) issues for the main campus building, the
gyms and air handling unit (AHU 9) in the music/gym building have been documented as a
project to be considered for inclusion in a future bond program. Under the 2004 Bond Program,
the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems were replaced in the music/gym
building (except for AHU 9) and the large and small gyms.

• Air ducts in the 150-classroom wing need to be tested and cleaned. The Service Center
has been contacted about the issue but has not responded.

The 2004 Bond Program did not include in the scope of work for Bedichek any HVAC (heating,
ventilation and air conditioning) work in the 150-classroom wing. Staff from the Office of
Facilities, the Service Center and the Construction Management Department did visit the school
to investigate reported indoor air quality issues in this area of the school. Some of the problems
with air quality were directly related to campus housekeeping issues; others were the result of
furniture and other objects being placed in a way that blocked both supply and return air flow.
Other problems with the air conditioning system were noted, and some measures have been
taken to make improvements, while other solutions are still being developed.
