The District Staff will review all proposed amendments and make appropriate changes to the base document on an annual basis, and release addendums as necessary.

The District Design Standards are divided into two documents:

(1) District Design Criteria and

The District Design Criteria is used by the Design Professional in conjunction with the Educational Specifications and District Master Specifications (DMS) to develop the design and contract documents. The District Master Specifications are the minimum standards for all projects on School District property.
