School Building Aid/School Facilities

The School Building Aid program provides financial reimbursement for the cost of construction or substantial renovation of school buildings. School districts may receive up to 60% of the cost of construction, land acquisition, planning & design, furniture, fixtures, and equipment. This office also provides information and technical advice concerning planning, construction, and maintenance of school facilities.

Following legislation in 2012 the School Building Aid program will undergo significant changes when it resumes in FY 15. Many of the details remain to be developed through the administrative rule process. The following slides describe the major changes. Additional information will be provided as the procedures are developed further.
