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.

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.

The Toronto District School Board  has identified approximately 20,400 different repairs needed to its schools. The total value of those repairs was $3.7 billion as of May 2021.  The available budget for school repairs is $314 million
