It is the purpose of this policy to comply with State and Federal regulations concerning prevailing wage rate.
The Department of Industry, Labor, and Human Relations will determine the prevailing wage rate in the locality
where the work is to be performed.
The Superintendent shall designate a Prevailing Wage Coordinator for this District.
The Prevailing Wage Coordinator will submit to the Superintendent, for Board of Education approval, procedures for
monitoring compliance with prevailing wage laws. S/He will request the Department of Commerce to establish the
prevailing wage rate in this District for school construction or renovation projects. A schedule of those wages must
be attached to the specifications for the work, and printed on any bidding blanks. A copy of the bidding blank must
be filed with the Department prior to the award of any contract. Thereafter, any contract which is awarded must
include a provision that each laborer, workman, or mechanic employed by the contractor will be paid at a rate not
less than the prevailing wage rate. On the first pay date, the contractors and subcontractors must provide each
employee with written notification of his/her job classification and the prevailing wage rate for his/her job
classification, unless the employee is covered by a collective bargaining agreement.
