School construction remains high, but not as high as it has been over the last eight years. Projections for the future (projects expected to be completed and/or started in 2009) show a significant decline. Capital budgets may be in place, but the economic hard times that are affecting all of us and forcing cuts in many local school programs are also having an effect on construction planning. How much, and to some extent where and why, is the focus of this report.
