About the Department of Capital Projects
Welcome to Capital Projects.
The mission of Capital Projects is to direct, coordinate and review the District’s building and renovation programs in the areas of planning, design and construction. With the development of funding for District schools from both State and alternative sources, Capital Projects monitors the funding and coordinates the preparation and administration of budgetary materials and exercises administrative control over expenditures for construction and alterations of the schools.
The department coordinates the evaluation of the policies and procedures related to facilities planning. Upon completion of site assessments, recommendations for improvements and changes are set forth. Capital Projects oversees the construction and renovations of all the District school facilities by utilizing a contracted design team of various architects, engineers and other consultants required to properly design the project and administer the construction. SCCPSS has developed standards for construction that are stipulated through our Board approved Design Guidelines. These guidelines serve as a valuable tool in our work to continually improve the district's educational facilities and ensure uniformity across the school system.

Capital Projects is proud to represent SCCPSS in meetings with contractors, local public agencies, community groups and others to interpret and explain school construction procedures, funding strategies, asset management procedures and building program regulations.
The District’s Capital Projects are presented monthly for information to the Board of Public Education during Capital Improvement Committee (CIC) meetings. Meeting presentations can be found by clicking on any of the CIC Meeting documents listed on this web page. A key resource that provides funding for many of the projects that are featured during monthly CIC meeting is ESPLOST.
