Placeholder Image

CT Brayton & Sons, Inc. is expected to receive approval from the Ripon Unified school board on handling the preconstruction and lease-lease back services on the Colony Oak Elementary School reconstruction project at tonight’s meeting.
The district has already issued a Request for Proposals – under law (AB 2316), RUSD met with five firms, as required under the established prequalification criteria, receiving proposals from each – with CT Brayton & Sons providing the best value in converting Colony Oak into a state-of-the-arts Science Technology Engineering Math campus.
A Selection Committee also interviewed all five firms, ranking CT Brayton on top of the list.
Pending approval, district staff can negotiate a preconstruction and Guaranteed Maximum Price contract with Escalon-based CT Brayton for the project.
This will take place during the 7 p.m. open session in Council Chambers, 259 N. Wilma Ave.
Other agenda items include:
uThe board honoring Nick Garoutte of Ripona Elementary School and Cyanne McKibben of Ripon High for receiving the San Joaquin County Office of Education’s “Every Student Succeeding” award.
uTrustees will also look to approve a Memorandum of Understanding between RUSD and the Ag Advisory Committee.
uThey’re scheduled to OK the MOUs between the district and SJCOE for Artists-in-Schools at Ripon Elementary School and Weston Elementary School.
