Over the past year, MCPS conducted a comprehensive facility assessment of all of our school facilities, including holding centers. This provides a baseline of information for each building across a wide range of facility aspects. MCPS contracted with an independent engineering firm to assess the facilities and collect data according to national industry standards. [Read Policy FAA]
Definition: KFIs assess major infrastructure elements in a variety of categories. KFIs are components of a facility that taken together provide an overall description of an individual school's facility condition.
The KFI data itself does not dictate or sequence specific construction projects. The large amount of data collected will be vital to understanding the needs of our facilities and strategically targeting resources to address these needs. It will inform our educational facility planning work and our ongoing efforts to sustain the useful life of our schools.
The data is currently available in three summary tables that display comparative information across all schools. Each table also contains the ability to hover on the column headings for a description, and to hover on the color dots for a numerical value. Each school has its own individual summary page which can be accessed by clicking on the school name within the summary tables. We will continue to add data points and elements to these displays over the coming months. Please note:

Conditions trending positive: Future facility needs may include possible preventive maintenance (where applicable) and minor repairs (corrective maintenance) to possibly few or some subcomponents.
Conditions needing review: Future facility needs may include minor repairs to several sub-components; or significant repair, rehabilitation or replacement of one or more subcomponents, but not enough to encompass the component-section as a whole; or combinations thereof.
Conditions nearing the end of anticipated life span: Future facility needs may include major repair, rehabilitation or replacement to the component-section as a whole.

Infrastructure data is used as a key facility indicator (KFI) to objectively quantify and evaluate the current condition of a facility and to make two types of benchmark comparisons on the relative condition of that one facility with:
