49. Overview of the Review Process

A flow chart of the review process

  1. LEA identifies and evaluates potential sites and/or construction on or expansion of existing school site.
  2. LEA discusses small school site with CDE through site review process and/or preliminary plan review.
  3. If subject to the Small School Site Policy, LEA submits Small School Site Worksheet.
  4. Based on the Worksheet, total site acres is more than 50% of CDE recommended site size then proceed as normal with site/plan review process
    or
    Based on the Worksheet, total site acres is less than or equal to 50% of CDE recommended site size. then project must comply with policy provisions unless it qualifies for specific exemptions as identified in the policy.

62. Limited Activity Use Exemption
63. Limited Activity Use Exemption (continued)
64. Unrestricted Uses (50,200kV)
65: Field Management Plan
  1. A site plan layout, including buffer zones and placement of limited activity and lower intensity uses closer to the power lines, that aims for reduction of transmission line EMF exposure to staff and pupils
  2. Implementation of feasible low and no costs measures that aim for reduction in the transmission line(s) EMF levels (e.g. , increasing pole height, optimal circuit phasing for multiple circuit lines, use of compact pole top designs, and alternative placement of transmission lines, etc.)

    (The LEA may elect to conduct field measurements on the site in order to identify other candidate sources of EMF, such as distribution lines, for consideration of opportunities for low and no cost reduction or avoidance measures)
66. Field Management Plan (continued)
  1. An LEA commitment that design plans shall incorporate as feasible other EMF best practices or checklist of actions as provided by agencies such as the California Department of Health Services, the Division of the State Architect, and electric utilities, that should include but is not limited to addressing under the appropriate regulatory oversight:

    Location of distribution lines and internal electrical cables, transformers, and electric service panes; key classrooms with electrical equipment and appliances (such as computers); electrical system and plumbing plans to reduce net currents, use of ground fault interrupters; and audit/quality assurance procedures for compliance with applicable electrical codes such as detection of net currents
67. Field Management Plan (continued)
68. LEA Certification

The LEA exemption request to CDE for unrestricted uses should contain certification that:

  1. The exemption request and FMP has (or will be, prior to CDE granting the exemption) been made available for public review and considered at an LEA governing board public hearing (need not be conducted exclusively on the exemption issue, could be, but is not limited to hearings for Education Code Section 17211, California Environmental Quality Act or other separate hearing)
  2. Identifies measures accepted by the LEA from those recommended in the FMP
69. LEA Certification (continued)
  1. That any LEA accepted FMP measures shall be implemented prior to occupancy of the affected areas
  2. That future activities and projects on the site shall be consistent with the FMP, until such time as conditions change eliminating the necessity of the FMP as determined by CDE
