Facility Condition Index

2019 (calendar year)

The Facility Condition Index (FCI) rating is a measurement of the condition of a school building. It does not reflect on the safety of the building.

The health and safety of students, staff and community members are our top priority when planning school repairs. Our Facility Services staff works year-round to ensure our schools are safe regardless of their FCI rating.

Almost half of TDSB school buildings were built more than 60 years ago. Older schools often have a higher FCI rating as some building components such as walls, lights, floors and ventilation systems may require major repairs or replacement.

Renewal Needs Backlog

The Toronto District School Board’s Renewal Needs Backlog (RNB) list identifies approximately 23,400 different repairs needed in our schools. The total value of those repairs was $3.5 billion as of October 2019.

For the 2019-2020 school year, the TDSB will receive $292 million in provincial funding. These funds will be used to replace/repair building components identified during the Ministry’s school inspections, helping reduce the FCI of school buildings.

It is important to understand that these repairs do not represent a health or safety concern. Safety is a top priority for us at the TDSB and our maintenance plans are always focused on providing safe places for our students and staff. In order to do that, we fix the most critical problems related to health and safety first. Also, while components in a school building may be past their life expectancy (e.g. water boiler), they are in good condition and meet all required safety codes.



Urgent Building systems that are in critical condition and have surpassed their useful service life. These systems are very important to the operation of the building (e.g. boilers, other heat generating systems, fire alarm, sprinkler system, standpipe system, public address system, roofing, etc.). Although there is no specific timeframe to repair/replace these systems, it is recommended to do it as soon as funding becomes available.
High Building systems that are in critical or poor condition and their importance to the operation of the building is less than those classified as “urgent” (e.g. brick work, exterior doors, exterior windows, rooftop units, etc.). There is no specific timeframe to repair/replace these systems; however, repair/replacement is recommended as soon as funding becomes available.
Medium Building systems that are in fair condition with low importance to the operation of the building (e.g. floor finishes, washroom partitions, millwork, etc.).
Low Building systems that are in fair or good condition with very low importance to the operation of the building (e.g. wall partitions, interior wall finishes, interior doors, fences, etc.).
