The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) manages the design, construction and renovation of school facilities in New York City.[1]

The Authority is overseen by a three-member Board of Trustees appointed by the Mayor.[1] Current SCA trustees are Dennis Walcott (who also serves a Chancellor of the city's Department of Education), Curtis Harris and Emily Youssouf.

History[edit]

The School Construction Authority was created in 1988 by the New York State Legislature, which removed control of capital projects from the city's Board of Education in an effort to end corruption.[2][3]
