NC School Districts: Five-Year Facility Needs Survey Due January 8, 2021.
Every five years, the State of North Carolina requires school districts to estimate the funds needed for new construction, additions or renovations to existing facilities. School districts will be required to submit the detailed report by January 8, 2021. The survey requirements were emailed to district superintendents on July 31, 2020 providing a short window of time for facilities departments to complete data collection and submit to the state.
Many facilities departments don’t have the resources and the processes in place to efficiently complete the survey. At BAISCA, our team has developed a streamlined process for delivering the Facility Needs Survey. During the 2015 cycle, BAISCA managed and submitted the survey on behalf of nine N.C. school districts.
Not only does BAISCA collect the required data, but our team also develops executive summaries and prioritized lists of facility needs with associated cost and context — providing immense value to school districts beyond compliance with the state-mandated forms.
Our experienced team can help your district meet the state requirement for the Five-Year Facility Needs Survey and provide the information in a useful format for capital planning. Learn more.
BAISCA specializes in the collection of data and the development of reports related to facility issues in North Carolina school districts. Our field technicians will visit each school, or selection of schools, within a district to collect data about a specific building component or issue. A summary report ready for the Board or Leadership Staff is delivered to the district immediately following the collection of field data along with all backup data in electronic format.
