The Facilities Branch in the Division of District Support partners with local school districts to help build a statewide education facility infrastructure that supports student performance by providing an equitable and adequate learning environment for all students.
The branch provides assistance to school districts by reviewing and approving all sites, new buildings, additions, alterations of existing buildings, energy savings projects and hazardous material abatement from initial construction project application through final completion. The branch also reviews and approves property disposal and property lease agreements, and assists districts with construction finance.
A KDE District Facilities Branch Project Manager (DFB Project Manager) is assigned to each school district. These project managers are licensed architects who review and process facility planning and construction project submittals and provide guidance regarding statutes and regulations during the planning and construction processes. A list of DFB Project Manager assignments by district is available here
