NCSF Calls for Rebuilding America's School Infrastructure
The Council joined the leadership team of a non-partisan coalition advocating for a federal investment in America's public K-12 school facilities, the Re[Build] America’s School Infrastructure Coalition (BASIC). At the 2016 NCSF annual meeting, state school-facilities leaders from 25 states passed a resolution calling for “PK-12 public school buildings and grounds [to] be included in federal programs to address infrastructure needs."
Educating our Public Officials
Since 2016, following the Annual Meeting, many of our school facilities state officials have visited Congressional offices to educate representatives about the conditions of our public school facilities. They shared with them state level data on school facility spending and investments, and the needs for additional funding to address the inequitable conditions in our nation’s public school facility infrastructure. The National Council on School Facilities partners with Van Heuvelen Strategies which guided state officials in over 100 meetings with their representatives on Capitol Hill.
