The state School Building Authority is accepting public comments through noon Friday on extensive proposed policy changes.

“Nearly every section, appendix, form, and policy was amended,” SBA Executive Director David Roach wrote in a May 29 letter addressed to SBA board members, schools superintendents and school design and building companies.

Comments can be made via email to and the SBA board may consider them in approving, altering, adding to or rescinding the changes.


Among many other things, the proposals include reducing the minimum number of students that a planned school must have to qualify to receive funding from the SBA board. However, current policy and the proposed changes both allow the SBA to waive this minimum enrollment.
