SFB Board Packet Schedule for School Districts
The following schedule has been established for school districts to submit their project paperwork to their SFB Liaison based upon the dates of the upcoming Board meetings. If a school district submits the project paperwork by the submittal deadline, the SFB Liaison will review the submission and determine if it is complete and may be included on the agenda for the next meeting. However, if any additional information is needed, the project may need to be put on a future agenda. If a school district misses a deadline, the project may be considered for a future meeting.

Lead in Drinking Water Program
The School Facilities Board, in collaboration with the Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) and the Department of Health Services (ADHS), is working with Arizona school districts to remediate potential sources of lead in drinking water. School districts may apply for Building Renewal Grant (BRG) funding to replace drinking fountains and sink faucets, install in-line filters and conduct post-corrective action testing to ensure the availability of safe drinking water in Arizona schools. The link provided above is to the SFB's Lead in Drinking Water (LIDW) website where you will find links to school district test results and the status of BRG remediation projects through to completion. Please contact Bill DeArmond at [email protected] or 602-542-6667 if you have any questions about the program.
In addition, we have provided the link below to the ADEQ website for the proactive screening program.
