FA - FACILITIES DEVELOPMENT GOALS/PRIORITY OBJECTIVES
As the Board seeks to overcome deficiencies in its physical plant, it will strive to provide new and remodeled facilities that will offer the best possible physical environment for learning and teaching.
The Board aims specifically toward:
- New buildings and renovations that will accommodate and facilitate those new organizational and instructional patterns that support the school system's educational philosophy and instructional goals;
- Meeting all safety requirements through the remodeling of older structures;
- Providing such building renovations as needed to meet requirements on the availability of public school facilities to individuals with disabilities; and
- Building design and construction that will lend to low maintenance costs and the conservation of energy. These two factors will also be given special consideration in the renovation of buildings.
It is the Board's goal to provide the appropriate facilities needed for the number of students in the district and to provide the kind of facilities that will best support and accommodate the educational program. To this end, there should always be a five-year facilities plan on file with the Board, which is updated every two years.
Decisions pertaining to educational specifications of new buildings and those undergoing extensive remodeling will be developed only after the viewpoints of teachers, students and parents have been sought.
