• facility plan

    To determine each facility’s range of needs, a Facility Condition Assessment and an Educational Suitability Assessment was conducted on 100 facilities owned by Fulton County Schools. These assessments identified deficiencies and systems’ replacement needs that are anticipated in the next five years. Using the overall Facility Condition Assessment score, facilities were prioritized according to their critical system needs as well as overall needs.
