    The Rochester Schools Modernization Program is a multi-phase capital initiative of the
    Rochester
    City School District in partnership with the City of Rochester.
     
    Charged with overseeing the Program is the Rochester Joint Schools Construction Board. The RJSCB includes seven members: Three are appointed by the Superintendent of Schools; three are appointed by the Mayor of the City of Rochester; and the seventh is appointed by mutual agreement by the Superintendent and Mayor. Click on the file below to view the Cooperative Agreement among the City, the District, and the RJSCB regarding the Program. 
     
    Phase 1 
    Planning for Phase I, which was authorized by the State of New York, is expected to total up to $325 million in bonded projects. The RJSCB, on January 31, 2011, voted to send the Draft Comprehensive School Facilities Modernization Plan, Phase I, to Albany for review by the State. The plan is a concept draft for initial review by NYS. Plans for individual buildings will be refined during the final design process with the input of the Building Advisory Committees for each building. 
     
    The Phase I Comprehensive School Facilities Modernization Plan is over 300 pages with images, charts, and other large format files. The document has been broken up into 5 parts for faster downloading. Please click on the links below to download each of the 5 parts.

    Phase I Project Labor Agreement (PLA)
     
    In the Fall of 2011, the RJSCB hired Seeler Engineering P.C. to perform a PLA Study to evaluate the potential costs/benefits of a PLA for the RSMP. Based on the potential for significant savings outlined in the resulting PLA Study the RJSCB decided to commence negotiations for a PLA with the Rochester Building and Construction Trades Council acting on behalf of the twenty-three craft unions likely to participate in the RSMP Project.
