    About this Site

The DEP School Facilities Directory provides school leaders and faculty with convenient access to state and federal requirements, programs, and best practices related to building operations and grounds, new construction, environmental health, indoor and outdoor environmental quality and natural resource management. It is also a useful tool for schools representatives who are participating in any of New Jersey's green and sustainable school programs.

The DEP School Facilities Directory is designed for use by school, daycare, college and university administrators, business managers, grounds and maintenance staff, school board and parent association members, school nurses, teachers, coaches, librarians, parents, students and other interested professionals and citizens.
