THE SCHOOL SITE--ITS SELECTION, ANALYSIS, DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE.
BRUNING, WALTER F.
SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND COMMUNITY PLANNERS CAN AID THE SCHOOL SITE SELECTION PROCESS BY WORKING TOGETHER ON A COMMUNITY MASTER PLAN. MANY COMMUNITIES HAVE DEVELOPED SUCH A PLAN UNDER THE STATE AND FEDERALLY AIDED 701 PROGRAM. SOUND SITE SELECTION PRINCIPLES REQUIRE CONSIDERATION OF OTHER FACTORS THAN STUDENT POPULATION DISTRIBUTION. IDEALLY LOCATED, EASY TO DEVELOP SITES WITHIN EASY REACH OF UTILITIES SHOULD BE CHOSEN. CAREFUL STUDY SHOULD BE MADE OF ALTERNATE SITES. TO ASSIST IN THE SELECTION PROCESS, A SITE PLANNER SHOULD BE EMPLOYED. WHEN A SITE IS FINALLY CHOSEN, DETAILED MAPS SHOULD BE OBTAINED, PERSONAL SURVEYS SHOULD BE MADE, AND A PRELIMINARY SITE STUDY BY AN ENGINEER SHOULD BE MADE. SITE DEVELOPMENT INVOLVES PLANNING FOR THREE BASIC AREAS, THE APPROACH AREA, THE SERVICE AREAS, AND THE OUTDOOR LIVING AREAS. LANDSCAPE MATERIALS USED IN DEVELOPMENT CONSIST OF INVISIBLE AND VISIBLE MATERIALS. QUALITY PRODUCTS SHOULD BE USED IN THE INVISIBLE MATERIALS BECAUSE LATER PROBLEMS CAN BE AVOIDED. VISIBLE MATERIALS INCLUDE SUCH ITEMS AS SIDEWALKS, ROADS, TERRACES, TREES, SHRUBS, AND LAWN AREAS. ONCE INSTALLATION IS COMPLETE, PROVISION MUST BE MADE FOR MAINTENANCE. TIME AND COST EFFICIENCY SHOULD BE THE MAIN OBJECTIVES OF SUCH A PROGRAM. (RH)
