Replacement Schools

The Replacement School Construction program provides for the replacement of total or major portions of existing facilities in those instances where rehabilitation, upgrade, or repair of the existing facilities is not economically feasible or because of student capacity needs, required functional changes, and costs.

The Replacement School Construction program constructs and equips facilities for the more than 50,000 Indian students that attend 185 Bureau-owned schools. The Program's funding utilizes a Bureau-published Education Facilities Replacement Construction Priority List, which sets the list of schools most needing replacement.
