The article investigates effective directions of improving existing rural school buildings capital fund (on the example of Ukraine). The study was performed using an algorithm consisting of four steps. The study considered the prerequisites for improving the network and types of rural school buildings. Based on the analysis of modern socio-pedagogical concepts, the requirements for the material and technical base of schools in rural areas have been identified. The authors considered the existing fund of school buildings in rural areas of Ukraine regarding its compliance with modern social and pedagogical requirements. The study found that the main areas for improving the capital stock of school buildings in rural areas are modernization and reconstruction. The methodology of reconstruction works has been expanded; the method of calculating the effectiveness of reconstructive measures has been improved. It is revealed that the cost of reconstruction depends on the technical condition, building type and the number of premises that are insufficient (unnecessary).
