Students learn more and achieve at higher levels when they go to schools that are safe, in good repair, and not overcrowded.
The School Construction Authority (SCA) builds new public schools and manages the upgrades and renovations of large capital construction projects. The SCA also conducts the Building Condition and Assessment Survey and the Building Capacity and Utilization Report. Go to the SCA section for information about the DOE Five-Year Capital Plan, as well as enrollment projections and capacity and utilization reports for school facilities. The SCA protocol for environmental due diligence of schools considered for lease renewals is available for review.
