Purpose: To implement a comprehensive approach to assessing the conditions of bureau funded schools using a holistic site-by-site approach to provide a safe, secure, healthy, operationally modern, and long-lasting campus to support the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) mission to provide quality education opportunities.
Goal: To get all schools on a path to “Good” and then keep them there.
The Education Construction Site Assessment and Capital Investment Pilot Program incorporates the intended areas of concern outlined in the Negotiated Rulemaking Committee Final Report1. The report identified 6 areas that should be included in any assessment of a school2:
- Size of school
- School enrollment
- Age of school
- Condition of School
- Environmental factors
- School isolation
The report identified two criteria for eligibility for consideration:
- FCI condition of “poor” (>.10); or
- Schools 50 years or older AND educating 75 percent or more of students in portables.
