  • NewWe Building Condition Survey data entry and submission was closed effective June 30, 2016.  All data entry should have been completed by the deadline including certifying and submitting the surveys by the school superintendent. (07/20/16)
  • NewMany districts have requested an extension to submit the Building Condition Survey.  It is unknown at this time whether an extension will be granted.  A decision on whether the deadline for submission will be extended will be made in the near future.  (07/20/16)
  • NewWe have received calls from districts that submitted the BCS records by the deadline, but still have unsubmitted records in their inbox in the portal.  Districts should check the records remaining in the portal, and if not needed to be submitted (blank copy or record with errors), the record should be labeled 'DELETE' as the unique identifier (building name) and saved.  We will be running a clean-up program to remove any records that have been named 'delete' from the portal.  (07/20/16)
