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.

Arizona Rubber Flooring Project
The School Facilities Board (SFB) is working to identify schools with urethane rubberized flooring in gymnasiums, multi-purpose rooms, cafeterias and possibly classrooms. The presence of this flooring material does not automatically present a concern. However, out of an abundance of caution, the SFB has teamed up with the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) to address health and environmental concerns, develop testing protocols, evaluate the data, and implement any necessary remediation measures.
The SFB is moving swiftly to identify those schools with urethane rubberized flooring. We surveyed all Arizona school districts and will use information from the survey to identify those schools with urethane rubberized flooring, create a centralized inventory, proceed with a testing plan, and conduct any necessary corrective action.

Attention All School Districts:

School districts are required to spend the monies in the district building renewal fund as authorized by the statute, A.R.S. §15-2031 (H). Once the statute is repealed, the authority to spend monies in the district building renewal fund is also repealed.
School districts should consult with their attorney if they have any questions or concerns.
