Local Planning Committee
“School districts shall develop a local facility plan once every four years…” 702KAR1:001
The Kentucky Education Reform Act mandated changes in the state’s school systems in order to provide equitable educational opportunities for all students within the school district and between school districts across the state. Quality school facilities contribute significantly to an equitable education. 702KAR1:001, a Kentucky Administrative Regulation, creates implementation guidelines for the development of local district facility plans. The process involves parents, staff, community and the school board. The School Facilities Construction Commission provides funding for payments on school construction bonds based on unmet facility needs identified in the local district facility plan.
