- Phase I Cooperative Agreement
Planning for Phase I, which was authorized by the State of New York, is expected to total up to $325 million in bonded projects. The RJSCB, on January 31, 2011, voted to send the Draft Comprehensive School Facilities Modernization Plan, Phase I, to Albany for review by the State. The plan is a concept draft for initial review by NYS. Plans for individual buildings will be refined during the final design process with the input of the Building Advisory Committees for each building.

- Phase I Project Labor Agreement (PLA)
In the Fall of 2011, the RJSCB hired Seeler Engineering P.C. to perform a PLA Study to evaluate the potential costs/benefits of a PLA for the RSMP. Based on the potential for significant savings outlined in the resulting PLA Study the RJSCB decided to commence negotiations for a PLA with the Rochester Building and Construction Trades Council acting on behalf of the twenty-three craft unions likely to participate in the RSMP Project.

In February 2012, the RJSCB reached an agreement in principle with the Rochester Building and Construction Trades Council for a Project Labor Agreement. This agreement has been approved by the Building and Construction Trades Department of the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO).
