Ongoing ASD Maintenance Work
ASD has more than 7.8 million square feet in facilities and maintains the largest public facility footprint in the State of Alaska. As Alaska’s largest public school district, ASD budgets nearly $21 million annually for building and preventive maintenance. A quality school’s functional life, without major renewal, ranges from 30 to 50 years. However, for ASD’s 86 school buildings—many built in the population boom of the 1960s and 1970s, additional funds beyond the maintenance budget are required.
Paying Off Debt
