Response Notes

Responsive to this request, while no existing record contains comprehensive information on annual relocatable use broken out by school, our recent response to MPIA 2023-033 contains links to publicly available reports to the Board of Education on the number of relocatable classrooms approved by school for the past 10 years: https://mpia.hcpss.org/requests/2023-033.

For purchases of relocatable classrooms, information regarding annual piggyback contracts used since 2018 can also be found publicly:

Please note, no purchase of new relocatable classrooms was made in 2022. For reference, an additional purchase of relocatable classrooms was made in 2020 specific to the Hammond High School Addition and Renovation project: https://go.boarddocs.com/mabe/hcpssmd/Board.nsf/files/BLJLBR55CB8F/$file/02%2013%202020%20Bids%20Contracts%20%20BR.pdf (see PC-39).
