18A:18A-16. Preparation and approval of plans and specifications for public schoolhouses
18A:18A-16. All plans and specifications for the erection, alteration, improvement or repair of public school buildings shall be drawn by or under the supervision of an appropriate officer employed by the board to whom such power shall have been delegated by the board of education.
No contract for the erection of any building or any part thereof by any board of education of any school district shall be entered into until the final plans and specifications therefor have been submitted to, and approved by, either the Bureau of Facility Planning Services in the Department of Education or an appropriately licensed code official employed by any municipality in the State, with the written consent of that municipality. No change in any such plans or specifications, so approved, shall be made unless the same shall have been submitted to, and approved by, the Bureau of Facility Planning Services in the Department of Education or an appropriately licensed municipal code official, whichever entity originally approved the plans.
Should a municipal planning board, acting pursuant to the provisions of section 22 of P.L.1975, c.291 (C.40:55D-31), recommend against the approval of plans and specifications for the erection of a school building or any part thereof and file notice of that recommendation within 10 days with the Bureau of Facility Planning Services of the Department of Education for consideration during the plan review process, the Bureau of Facility Planning Services shall not approve the preliminary plans and specifications for educational adequacy until the objections of the municipal planning board have been considered.
