The Maine Department of Education's Office of School Facilities works to ensure that all Maine students have access to healthy, safe, and educationally appropriate facilities.

School facilities have a direct impact on student performance. Providing students with a high quality learning environment helps to ensure they are able to receive the education they need to reach their greatest level of achievement.

The Maine DOE provides financial and technical support, and administers a variety of programs to assist Maine schools in addressing their facility needs, including temporary classroom space, health and safety repairs, building additions and renovations, and new school construction.
