Budgeting for maintenance work

ASD has more than 7.7 million square feet in facilities and budgets nearly $21 million for annual building maintenance and preventive maintenance. A quality school’s functional life, without major renewal, ranges from 30 to 50 years. However, for 92 schools and other operations facilities, additional funds are required to update major components as many schools were built during the population boom of the 1960s and 1970s.
