A REPORT ON SPACE ALLOCATION.
EARTHMAN, GLEN I.
THE SQUARE FOOT STANDARDS PER PUPIL FOR SCHOOLS IS ANALYZED. THE SQUARE FOOT ALLOCATIONS FOR SEVERAL STATES AND PHILADELPHIA ARE DETERMINED BY DIVIDING THE TOTAL SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THE SCHOOL BY THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS THE SCHOOL IS INTENDED TO ACCOMMODATE. TABLES SHOWING STATE RECOMMENDATIONS OR REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ELEMENTARY, MIDDLE-JUNIOR HIGH, AND HIGH SCHOOL BUILDINGS ARE GIVEN. DISTINCTIONS BETWEEN STATES WITH SEVERE WEATHER AND MILD WEATHER ARE MADE. DIFFICULTY IN COMPARING SQUARE FOOTAGE ALLOCATIONS CAN BE ATTRIBUTED TO SUCH VARIABLE FACTORS AS--(1) BUILDING CODES, (2) BUILDING SITES, (3) GEOGRAPHIC DIFFERENCES, (4) CLIMATIC DIFFERENCES, (5) AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS, (6) SINGLE AS OPPOSED TO MULTI-STORY CONSTRUCTION, (7) COURSE OFFERINGS OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM, AND (8) EXTENT OF SPACE UTILIZATION THROUGH CLASS SCHEDULING.
