The Public School Capital Outlay Council (PSCOC), requires that all New Mexico pubic school districts complete a five-year Facility Master Plan. The master plan is a prerequisite to be eligible to receive state capital outlay assistance. This document has been prepared in accordance with the requirements issued by the PSCOC/PSFA. The intent of the Facilities Master Plan is to identify existing facility conditions, past and future enrollment, to review the District’s educational program, to verify the ability of the existing facilities meet minimum State of New Mexico Adequacy Standards, and to identify new or replacement facilities required to meet the needs of the District. This Facilities Master Plan is designed to be a flexible planning tool to identify facility issues and programmatic needs to the community, parents, staff, and the Board of Education and offer periodic input and revision as conditions change and new needs are identified within the District.
