Bids for District Contracts and Supplies
School District governing boards are required by Public Contact Code Section 20111(a) to let (award) contracts for certain purposes that are in excess of a specified dollar amount to the lowest responsible bidder. The types of contracts subject to this bid threshold include:
- The purchase of equipment, materials or supplies to be furnished, sold or leased to the District.
- Services, except construction services
- Repairs, including maintenance as defined in Section 20115, but excluding public projects as defined in Section 22002(c)
The bid limit for these types of contracts for 2016 is $87,800.
For public (construction) projects, the bid limit is $15,000.
If the District anticipates that a contract or purchase order will exceed the bid limit, the Board of Education will direct District staff to go out to bid on the project. Notices to Contractors calling for bids will be published in local general circulation newspapers. If you would like more information about District bids, please contact the Purchasing Department at 626-963-1611, extension 314.
The Glendora Unified School District, along with the majority of public school districts in California, collects developer impact fees as allowed by Government Code Section 53080. These fees are levied on new construction projects within District boundaries to offset the costs associated with providing additional school facilities for increased student enrollment generated by new housing development within the District’s boundaries. All new construction, and additions to existing buildings in excess of 500 square feet, will be assessed developer fees. Developer fees may be paid at the District Office, in the Office of the Assistant Superintendent of Business Services, Monday – Friday, 8:00- 4:30. Current rates are $3.36 per square foot for residential construction, $ 0.54 per square foot for commercial construction. For more information call 963-1611 extension 361.
The District recognizes that district facilities are a community resource whose primary purpose is to be used for school programs and activities. The Board of Education authorizes the use of school facilities by community groups for purposes provided for in the Civic Center Act when such use does not interfere with school activities.
Various District facilities are available for use by qualified individuals or groups. If you are interested in using a classroom, cafeteria, gym, field, or other facility at one of our school sites, please contact the school directly. You will be required to complete a facilities use application, and in some cases, pay a fee, and provide proof of insurance. For more information, please call the District Office at 626-963-1611, extension 361.
