The 2015 state legislature authorized the Division of Capital Construction to conduct a reassessment of the 2008 Public School Financial Assistance Assessment, now called Facility Insight. The Facility Insight program helps support the mission of the Capital Construction Assistance Board and the Division of Capital Construction. Facility Insight includes an in house team of assessors who continuously conduct state-wide facility assessments of all public school educational facilities. Assessments are based on condition and adequacy. The school condition analysis includes all the major building systems - roof, plumbing, heating, etc. The adequacy survey examines how well the buildings function for their intended purpose. The Facility Insight mission is to continuously attain accurate and consistent data for every public school and to be used as a state-wide resource for school facility data. Having an accurate state-wide inventory of all school facilities will help the state make informed decisions when evaluating BEST grant applications and about school facilities.
Regional Assessors are conducting assessments full time and are contacting districts to schedule visits. There is no need to contact the Division to schedule your assessment. Districts will be contacted at least three weeks prior to their scheduled visit. Please note that assessments of all public schools in Colorado will be completed over a multi-year time frame.
The Facility Insight Program has launched the Facility Insight Portal. This tool provides an overview of facility data that is collected during the field assessments. The effort to collect this information is a multi-year process. The information displayed on the portal is only what has been collected to-date and will continue to evolve as more data is collected. The assessment data is a resource for public school facility capital planning and funding.
