16  insert:

17         Section 1.  Subsection (1) of section 235.061, Florida

18  Statutes, is amended to read:

19         235.061  Standards for relocatables used as classroom

20  space; inspections.--

21         (1)  The Commissioner of Education shall adopt rules

22  establishing standards for relocatables intended for long-term

23  use as classroom space at a public elementary school, middle

24  school, or high school. "Long-term use" means the use of

25  relocatables at the same educational plant for a period of 4

26  years or more. These rules must be implemented by July 1,

27  1998, and each relocatable acquired by a district school board

28  after the effective date of the rules and intended for

29  long-term use must comply with the standards. The rules shall

30  require that, by July 1, 2002, relocatables that fail to meet

31  the standards may not be used as classrooms. After that date,

                                                   HOUSE AMENDMENT

                                     Bill No. CS/HB 1307, 1st Eng.

    Amendment No. ___ (for drafter's use only)





  1  all relocatables purchased, leased, or otherwise acquired by a

  2  public school district for use as classroom space shall be

  3  type IV non-combustible construction. A school district in

  4  possession of type VI portables, which are being used as

  5  classroom space, may retain those portables within the

  6  district whether owned by the district or under a current or

  7  renewable lease, subject to the provisions of s. 235.062. The

  8  standards shall protect the health, safety, and welfare of

  9  occupants by requiring compliance with the Uniform Building

10  Code for Public Educational Facilities or other locally

11  adopted state minimum building codes to ensure the safety and

12  stability of construction and onsite installation; fire and

13  moisture protection; air quality and ventilation; appropriate

14  wind resistance; and compliance with the requirements of the

15  Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. If appropriate, the

16  standards must also require relocatables to provide access to

17  the same technologies available to similar classrooms within

18  the main school facility and, if appropriate, to be accessible

19  by adequate covered walkways. By July 1, 2000, the

20  commissioner shall adopt standards for all relocatables

21  intended for long-term use as classrooms. A relocatable that

22  is subject to this section and does not meet the standards

23  shall not be reported as providing satisfactory student

24  stations in the Florida Inventory of School Houses.
