The department’s mission is to make students and staff  proud of their school so that they can concentrate on their studies and core missions,  by investing in its physical assets (i.e. buildings, sites, and equipment) to ensure children have a safe and quality learning environment. Our goal is to achieve an optimal standard of physical condition for each school through renovations and improve learning through educational enhancements by using  innovative design, planning, and construction techniques.

Major categories of programs:

  • Critical facility needs and interior renovations
  • Accessibility improvements
  • Programmatic initiatives (Pre-K Initiative, Science Labs, IB/STEM), including overcrowding relief
  • Site improvements
