The Utah State Office of Education (USOE) has developed this website to help school district and charter school administrators and facilities personnel better plan, build and maintain efficient and effective school facilities that will properly support appropriate education programs for Utah children. Included within this website is the electronic version of the School Construction Resource Manual plus related law and administrative rules, construction forms, construction- and inspection-related references, plus a list of current construction projects, and new school facilities photographs.


The purpose of building codes are to establish the minimum requirements to safeguard the public health, safety and general welfare of those who occupy facilities.
