Summary: The Field Act requires the Department of General Services to supervise the design and construction of any school building, including both school district and community college district buildings, or, if the estimated cost exceeds $100,000, the reconstruction or alteration of or addition to any school building, to ensure that plans and specifications comply with the rules and regulations adopted pursuant to the act and with relevant building standards, and to ensure that the work of construction has been performed in accordance with the approved plans and specifications. Existing law requires the Department of General Services, for purposes relating to access and use by persons with disabilities, to issue a written approval of the plans and specifications of certain buildings and facilities, as provided. Existing law defines
“school building” for these purposes, and excludes from that definition any building that serves or is intended to serve as residential housing for school district and community college district teachers and employees, and their families.
This bill would additionally exclude from these requirements any building used as a residence for students attending a campus of a community college district, except upon a request by the community college district, as specified.
