School Project Guidelines

A handbook has been created to provide guidelines for school site improvement projects. The purpose of these guidelines is to offer Administrators, Facilities and PAC’s a handbook to help clarify the process and involvement that is required to undertake a project for their school both for a minor project like garden beds to a major project like installing playground equipment. The Board of Education sincerely appreciates the efforts undertaken by Parent Advisory Councils (PAC’s) to enhance the facilities the District is able to provide our students.
