Federal Spending on PK-12 School Facilities
Filardo, Mary; O'Donnell, Sean
21st Century School Fund
Methodology: There is no national source of data or information on the federal role in funding and oversight for public PK-12 school facilities. To address this shortcoming, 21st Century School Fund has prepared this study with the support of the National Clearinghouse for Educational Facilities. In collecting data and information for this report, the authors contacted federal and state agency representatives and nonprofit organizations. However many agencies did not have available (or provide) PK-12 specific data regarding their federal program. In tandem to any data provided directly by federal and state agencies they utilized public sources such as agency websites and other expert organization websites such as LISC. They also utilized for ARRA level data provided through project recipient reports. Information was also located through news sources such as the National Clearinghouse of Educational Facilities spotlight news, and through media contacts such as Peter Schroeder at the Bond Buyer. Much of the data collected needed to be cleaned up by converting PDFs into excel spreadsheets, sorting and sifting the data to isolate Pk-12 school facilities, and then created into data sets. Finally after data sets were created and information gathered, they consolidated the federal program funding types and created a framework for analysis for the final report.
