​The District Facilities Branch (DFB) in the Division of District Support (DDS) partners with local school districts to help build a statewide education facility infrastructure that supports student performance by providing adequate and equitable learning environments for all students.
DFB provides assistance to school districts by reviewing and approving all new buildings, additions, alterations of existing buildings and energy savings projects from initial construction project application through final project completion. The branch also administers real property matters related to site acquisition, disposal of surplus property, leases and easements.
A DFB project manager is assigned to each school district. These project managers are licensed architects who review and process facility planning and construction project submittals and provide guidance regarding statutes and regulations during the planning and construction processes.
Please address correspondence to the district's assigned DFB Project Manager and Cc: the District Facilities Branch Manager, Greg Dunbar.
