The Environmental Safety Improvement Plan

To accelerate the improvement of environmental conditions in our schools, we are taking initial actions to:

  • Better identify concerns, increase our responsiveness, and address known asbestos issues
  • More proactively and effectively manage environmental safety and capital projects
  • Better educate and empower our staff and community about environmental safety in our schools

Capital Improvement Projects

New! $500 Million in Capital Funds

In October 2019, the School District borrowed an additional $500 million in capital funds to support the next phase of school improvements. To support these projects, the District will be hiring a new Program Management firm by February 2020 that will partner with the Operations Team and provide comprehensive project management, design, and communications support.
