Priority Ranking Process and Status

Due to limited Funding, only projects addressing emergency needs, crowded classrooms and aging buildings have been funded. Funding is prioritized in the following categories, and districts are ranked according to need within their categories:

  1. manmade or natural disasters
  2. overcrowding due to population growth or aging buildings
  3. school district reorganization (consolidation or annexation)
  4. severe and continuing health/life safety hazards
  5. provide accessibility for qualified individuals with disabilities
  6. other unique solutions to facility needs

For each priority other than priority five, accessibility for individuals with disabilities, districts are ranked based on the number of inadequately housed students which currently exists in the district. That number is calculated by subtracting the district's current available capacity from the current enrollment. A district's ranking within a level of priority is then determined by multiplying its current needed capacity by the ratio of its needed capacity to its enrollment. The higher the number, the higher the ranking.

For priority five, the district's needed capacity is the number of qualified individuals with disabilities who require a school construction project.
