School Planning and Construction


About Us

The NVUSD School Planning and Construction Department works on a variety of projects for the District.  In addition to planning and overseeing the construction of new schools, and modernizing existing schools, the department works closely with the Instructional Services and Business Services Department to establish enrollment projections, making recommendations for new schools, attendance boundaries, and accommodating growth at existing schools.

Our School Planning and Construction staff diligently work towards identifying and delivering the best possible learning environments and support facilities for NVUSD students, community, and faculty.
