Capital Asset Advisory Committee

In 2010, the Jeffco Public Schools Board of Education authorized the establishment of the Capital Asset Advisory Committee in accordance with policies EL-8 and FB, which focus on facility conditions and long-range facility planning.

The committee was formed from members of the 2005 Capital Improvement Program Oversight Committee and the 2009 Facilities Usage Committee. The purpose of the committee is to monitor the planning of capital needs and the implementation of capital programs. This could include future bond programs.


  • Are familiar with facility design or construction practices.
  • Have business management expertise with organizations of comparable size to the district.
  • Do not have relationships that would interfere with independent judgment.

Preference is given to Jefferson County residents.

The Work of the Committee

The committee meets monthly to:

  • Establish a transparent set of criteria for the evaluation of district facilities. Elements may include facility condition index (FCI), educational adequacy index (EAI), utilization based on enrollment to capacity ratio, demographic predictions, student achievement, financial responsibility and others.
  • Help develop an annual District Wide Facility Master Plan that may include school replacements, school consolidations, school closures, grade-level reconfigurations and boundary and transportation changes.
  • Monitor the planning of capital needs and the implementation of capital programs..
  • Help develop a potential future bond program.
  • Ensure that long-term decisions are consistent with the district’s needs and strategic plan.
  • Ensure that communication with the community informs decisions.
  • Provide an annual written report to the Board on the ongoing responsibilities of the committee.

The Capital Asset Advisory Committee encourages continuous process improvement and implementation of effective decision-making based on data that follows district policies, procedures and practices.
