Groundbreakings and Dedications

    GroundbreakingFor many communities, school districts, institutes of higher education, or and state agencies, receiving state funding for a project that will benefit the community and public is an important milestone. These milestones are often commemorated by groundbreakings – the symbolic start of a construction project – or dedications/grand openings that celebrate the opening of the completed project.

We offer Groundbreakings and Dedications Tool Kits to help districts and other facilities plan for these special days.
