Board of Education Policy 7320: Selection of Architect or Engineer

The Board of Education is responsible for employing an architect if a project requires architectural or engineering services.  The architect or engineer must be licensed in the State of New York and be familiar with the laws, regulations and procedures relating to school construction.

Selection of an architect or engineer to plan and design a new school building or additions to existing buildings shall be made by the Board after a careful review of one or more architectural firms with respect to professional qualifications and experience in designing school buildings.  In addition, the Board will consider the willingness of such individual to work cooperatively with district staff.
