The National Council on School Facilities is a nonprofit organization formed by the directors of the states education facilities agencies to support states in their roles and responsibilities for the delivery of safe, healthy, educationally adequate school facilities that are sustainable and fiscally sound.

Membership is open to the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Bureau of Indian Education, the Department of Defense Education Activity, and the territories of the United States. Each state or other public entity is represented by the director of its education facilities agency or office.

The Council will save states time and public money by supporting states as stewards of the nation's PK-12 public facility inventory. Our PK-12 public school buildings are valued at one trillion dollars. States and districts spend approximately $50 billion each year on school operations and maintenance and averaged $50 billion per year in capital spending from 2005-2008. The Council will leverage each member state's time and talent to get the best value for these investments:

  • through collaboration and the elimination of duplicate efforts;

  • by identifying, developing, and advancing effective practices and policies for public-sector PK-12 school facilities; and

  • by securing private resources to support public innovation.
