The Facilities Services Division is responsible for the execution of the District's school construction bond programs, the maintenance and operations of schools, the utilization of existing assets,
and master planning for future capital projects.
Currently the District comprises:
710 square miles with more than 21 thousand buildings totaling more than 75 million square feet.
Total student enrollment including Adult Education is 734,640.
1,180 K-12 schools and 122 other schools and centers.
FSD Bond Program
The LAUSD's voter-approved Bond Program is currently valued at $27.5 billion. The Facilities Services Division (FSD) is managing a $25.6 billion program to build new schools to reduce overcrowding and modernize existing campuses throughout the District. Until recently, the primary goal of the bond program had been to reduce overcrowding by providing students with the opportunity to attend a neighborhood school operating on a traditional, two-semester calendar.
As the District nears achievement of this goal and shifts the bond program towards further investments in our aging and deteriorating school facilities, the FSD is paving the way for the development and prioritization of future capital projects, for school sites with the most critical physical conditions and improve them so they are safe, healthy, and functional places to learn. In 2014, the Board of Education approved the allocation of $7.8 billion to the School Upgrade Program (SUP), the next phase of the District's bond program.
To date, more than 600 new construction projects providing more than 170,000 new seats have been delivered.
More than 19,600 school modernization projects have completed construction to provide upgraded facilities which help improve the learning environment for students.
Only one school continues to operate on a multi-track calendar -- a 99 percent decrease -- and there are no longer any schools operating on a Concept 6 calendar in compliance with the Williams settlement agreement.
Solar panels on rooftops and parking shade structures throughout the District are anticipated to generate approximately 21.4 megawatts of solar energy.
School network infrastructure upgrades at all of the District's K-12 school sites are nearly completed.
Over 575 Board approved projects valued at $4.0 billion are in the pre-construction phase and another 300+ projects valued $475 million are under construction.
