RE:                  2010 School Facilities Inventory

In accordance with 20-A MRSA, Section 15917, the Maine Department of Education is required to conduct an inventory of all public school facilities in Maine.  This year we are using a one-page inventory to conduct the annual school facilities inventory.  The 2010 School Facilities Inventory form is brief and easy to complete.  Given that, we ask that you take action and complete it no later than December 31, 2010.

It is particularly important that you submit your data this year as we will upload the data into a database for future years.  Also, to make the process more efficient, we hope to make this inventory available electronically in the future.

A copy of the 2010 School Facilities Inventory form is located on the School Facilities homepage:  http://www.maine.gov/education/const/home/home.htm .  You will see that we are asking for data that most schools will have readily available.  Please complete one form for each building in your school unit including administrative and maintenance buildings.  You can print the form, fill it out by hand (write legibly please), scan and e-mail the completed form/s to Pat.Hinckley@maine.gov .  We will cross check and enter the data.  Please remember the importance of accurate data when confirming and recording your facilities information, as your inventory will be used to verify your school facilities’ ages, square footage and building systems.  If you have questions about your unique facilities situation, contact Pat Hinckley at 207-624-6886 or Pat.Hinckley@maine.gov .
