The Construction Management Department’s mission is to successfully plan, design, construct and complete educational and support facilities that promote the district’s Strategic Plan and Facility Master Plan in the most cost effective and innovative manner.
CMD is responsible for the management of all capital construction projects, large and small. The majority of this work is associated with voter-approved bond programs. Smaller projects are sometimes funded out of the district's maintenance and operations budget.
Organizationally, the Construction Management Division falls under the direction of Chief Business and Operations Officer.
