GUIDE FOR THE EVALUATION OF SCHOOL FACILITIES.
RESNICK, JEROME J.; AND OTHERS
THE SCHOOL EVALUATION GUIDE IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE WORKABLE CRITERIA FOR APPRAISAL OF THE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF EXISTING SCHOOL PLANTS. INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM THE GUIDE CAN BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF SEEKING OUT UNSATISFACTORY BUILDING FEATURES AND TO STIMULATE IMPROVEMENTS IN FUTURE SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION. WITH THIS EVALUATION PROCEDURE, SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND ARCHITECTS CAN DETERMINE DEFICIENT CHARACTERISTICS IN A SCHOOL AND THE STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CORRECTING THEM. SECTION PROFILES HAVE BEEN INCLUDED IN THIS CRITERIA FOR THE SITE--SPATIAL, VISUAL, THERMAL, SONIC, AESTHETIC, AUDIO-VISUAL, EQUIPMENT, SAFETY, AND MAINTENANCE FACTORS. THE SECTION PROFILES HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED TO PERMIT A MORE DETAILED EVALUATION FOR EACH OF THE FACTORS THAT ARE TREATED UNDER THE SAME FORMAT CONTAINING A BRIEF DESCRIPTIVE PARAGRAPH, A SET OF QUESTIONS RELATIVE TO SPECIALIZED ASPECTS OF THE FACTOR, AND AN EVALUATION PROFILE FORM. THE FINAL SECTION OF THE GUIDE IS A SERIES OF QUESTIONNAIRES TO BE SUBMITTED TO GROUPS OF TEACHERS, PRINCIPALS, STUDENTS, AND DISTRICT ADMINISTRATORS. THESE QUESTIONNAIRES SUPPLEMENT DATA GATHERED ON SONIC, THERMAL, AND VISUAL FACTORS. THIS EVALUATION GUIDE REPRESENTS THE EFFORT OF SCHOOL PLANNERS, ADMINISTRATORS, ARCHITECTS, AND ENGINEERS WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED THEIR TIME TO THE CAUSE OF BETTER SCHOOL PLANNING. IT IS IN EXPERIMENTAL FORM AND THROUGH PERIODIC USE, A FINAL GUIDE WILL BE DEVELOPED. (RK)
