OSPI School Facilities and Organization supports the State Superintendent in providing School Districts with financial and technical assistance in three primary areas: Capital construction, facilities maintenance/management initiatives, and School District organization issues.
The Information and Condition of Schools (ICOS) is a web-based system where information and condition details, about facilities and sites operated by the Districts, are documented and stored. ICOS meets the increasing demand for accurate school facility information and building condition data that supports statewide programs such as the School Construction Assistance Program (SCAP), District facility management, and school facility information requests or policy decisions. This information is also used to support the performance-based Asset Preservation Program which gauges how well the facilities, buildings, and sites are maintained.
ICOS benefits the Districts by providing functionality for inventory tracking, condition rating, record keeping, and comparative and report analysis.
District access to ICOS may be granted with a request to your
Regional Coordinator. School Districts must determine who will have such authorization. Only authorized District users are allowed to access the ICOS system.
