Join the conversation on condition of Duval's school buildings

Updated: Jan 25, 2019



Jan. 22, 2019 - Duval has the oldest schools in Florida with the majority of schools being more than 50 years old. The condition of our schools buildings impact property values, local business development, and most importantly, student learning.


Join the School Board Members and Superintendent Dr. Diana Greene to learn more about our schools and the process to improve the learning environment for our teachers and students. There will be a moderated discussion where your questions will be answered.


Please note that these meetings will primarily provide an overview of the status of our buildings. No recommendations have been determined at this time. We are still working with outside contractors to determine tentative recommendations, and will hold meetings later this spring to go over those recommendations.

Editor's Note: Periodically, the district commissions what’s called a “Facility Condition Index” or FCI. This is a process by which all the district’s school buildings and facilities are assessed. The FCI is used to help create a “Master Plan” in which recommendations are made. Recommendations can include repairs, school closures and/or new school buildings. The results of the most recent FCI were shared with Board members this past December. The above community meetings are the next step in the process. At these meetings, the FCI results will be  discussed. Later in the spring, as recommendations are developed, the district will host community meetings to go over the recommendations.
