The School Building Aid program provides financial reimbursement for the cost of construction or substantial renovation of school buildings. School districts may receive up to 60% of the cost of construction, land acquisition, planning & design, furniture, fixtures, and equipment.

Many of the details remain to be developed through the administrative rule process. The following slides describe the major changes. Additional information will be provided as the procedures are developed further.
