Public Notice Child Daycare Facility




     The Red Oak Community School District Board of Directors invites proposals to partner with the District by operating a Child Daycare facility to be located in the current Washington Intermediate school building, 400 W. 2nd Street, Red Oak, IA 51566. The District contemplates that a “lease and use agreement” will be negotiated between the Parties spelling out lease terms and operational responsibilities. The Washington school property is expected to be available for necessary alterations to accommodate the Daycare use by August 1, 2019.


          To view the property or discuss potential interest, please contact Supt. Tom Messinger at the school administrative office, telephone 712-623-6600. Proposals must be submitted at the Red Oak Community School District Business Office, 1901 Broadway Street, Suite A, Red Oak, Iowa by noon on Friday, May 10, 2019.  Prospective interested parties will present their business plans for development and operation of the property at a Board meeting to be held on the 13th day of May, 2019 in the Red Oak Inman Primary School Media Center at 7:00 p.m.  Submitted proposals should remain valid for forty days from date of submission.


The Board reserves the right to reject any and all proposals and to negotiate further with any bidder or bidders and to select the bidder it deems in the best interest of the District and the Community which may not be the highest financial bid.  The Board is interested in a long-term partnership which will add value to the Red Oak community and benefit the District.  The Bidder must submit a detailed written proposal and be available to present this proposal and answer questions about it at an upcoming Board meeting. The proposal shall include but shall not be limited to: plans for renovation or alteration of available space for Daycare operations, timeline for implementation of its plan, project financing, prior experience relating to Daycare operation and any proposals similar to the proposed use, licensure or projected licensure from applicable regulatory authority, identification of key, experienced staff, preliminary fee schedules, expected staffing numbers, and any other factors the Bidder deems important. 


The School Board hopes to choose the proposal and bidder which it wishes to work with in negotiating a mutually agreed lease and use agreement at the Board meeting to be held May 13, 2019 or within thirty days thereafter.
