DETERMINATION OF THE LOCATION FOR AN AREA SCHOOL.
DOST, JEANNE
TWO MODELS ARE PRESENTED TO AID PLANNERS IN SELECTING THE SITE FOR AN AREA SCHOOL WHICH IS MOST EFFICIENT IN MINIMIZING TIME AND COSTS OF TRANSPORTING STUDENTS. THE FIRST MODEL DEALS WITH THE RELATIONSHIP OF SCHOOL SITE AND BUS TRANSPORT PROBLEMS. SOLUTION TO THE SITE PROBLEM IS FOUND BY COMPUTING A LOCATION COEFFICIENT FOR EACH POTENTIAL SITE USING TRANSPORT INPUTS AND TIME-DISTANCES. THE SECOND MODEL PROVIDES A SOLUTION FOR THE COMMUTER POST-SECONDARY EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION. ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY OF ANY POTENTIAL SCHOOL LOCATION SITE WILL BE DEPENDENT UPON SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION OF STUDENTS, GEOGRAPHICAL TERRAIN, URBAN-RURAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE REGION, AND NATURE OF ROADS AND ROADWAY NETWORKS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE WESTERN REGIONAL SCIENCE ASSOCIATION MEETINGS (LAS VEGAS, JANUARY 27-29, 1967). (HW)
