Guidelines are presented of the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) that illustrates to parents and community members of local school councils how they can advocate for and get real capital improvements to their local schools. A nine-step process is detailed for increasing capital investment in local schools. Steps include setting up a facilities committee, evaluating school building conditions and the building's influence on school environment, organizing for overcrowding, putting together a plan for capital improvements to the school, presenting the CIP to the local school council and the broader school community, and monitoring plan implementation.
