The process for bond building improvements at a school or facility generally involves the selection of a project architect to lead the design process, a contractor to handle the physical implementation of improvements and the creation of a school-appointed Design Advisory Group (DAG). A Design Advisory Group is a committee of school stakeholders, which can include school staff, parents and community members, who work with the project design team to identify priorities especially when it comes to less defined aspects of a school's bond improvements such as money set aside for building renovations, specials programs upgrades (elementary) and art, theater and music improvements (secondary level).
