School facilities professionals play a critical role in the state's education system. Today's school buildings and campuses are complicated, and so is the job of maintaining them. SFA supports the welfare of our State's schools, buildings and grounds, and the professionals responsible for managing our children's educational facilities.
Studies link well-maintained, healthy, and safe learning environments to greater student achievement and higher test scores. An investment in our school facilities is a sound investment in our students' future.
