Facilities Department

Facilities Master Plan:
In its dedication to upholding the standard of excellence in neighborhood education, the Rocklin Unified School District (RUSD) has developed a robust districtwide Facilities Master Plan (FMP) (April 2018). This comprehensive plan outlines the diverse needs of all school facilities, including TK-12 classroom structures, cutting-edge educational technology, and essential building systems. By serving as a strategic blueprint, the FMP guides investments in Rocklin Unified's educational infrastructure, ensuring a conducive environment for learning and growth across our district.
School Facilities Improvement:
To uphold its commitment to furnishing top-tier facilities that facilitate students' pursuit of educational excellence, the Rocklin Unified School District (RUSD) prioritizes essential projects to foster personalized instruction and enhance student success. Given the prevalence of aging infrastructure throughout the district, RUSD remains vigilant in seeking funding avenues to address repairs and modernize facilities, thereby ensuring the maintenance of safe learning and working environments.
