SCHOOL SITES. SELECTION AND DEVELOPMENT.
REIDA, G.W.
CERTAIN CRITICAL CRITERIA SHOULD BE CONSIDERED IN SELECTING THE SCHOOL SITE. IMPORTANT IS THE STUDY OF SUCH FACTORS AS PRESENT AND PROJECTED PUPIL POPULATION, THE SCHOOL MASTER PLAN, MAIN THOROUGHFARES, DWELLINGS, LAND USE, SOILS, (SHOWN BY SERVICE MAPS), EXISTING SCHOOL FACILITIES AND ATTENDANCE, BOUNDARIES, UTILITY SERVICES AND FLOOD CONTROLS. PREPARING THE SITE FOR BUILDING CONSTRUCTION IS DEPENDENT ON DISTRICT ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION, I.E., ELEMENTARY, SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL OR OTHER, ULTIMATE SCHOOL ENROLLMENT, THE SCHOOL'S EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM, EXPENDITURES FOR EXCAVATION AND FOR OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OF THE PLANT, CONVENIENCE AND SAFETY FACTORS, AND GENERAL AREAS TO IMPLEMENT THE SCHOOL PROGRAM. THE SITE SHOULD BE LOCATED IN A PROPER RELATIONSHIP TO COMMUNITY FACILITIES AND BE EASILY ACCESSIBLE TO BOTH PUPILS AND PATRONS. TO DETER ADDITIONAL COSTS LAND CONTOURS, SUBSOIL COMPOSITION, AVAILABILITY OF LAND, DISPOSITION OF STRUCTURES ON THE LAND, LEGAL MEASURERS TO ACQUIRE THE LAND, PHYSICAL HAZARDS AND POSSIBLE ANNOYANCES SHOULD BE CAREFULLY EXAMINED. THE SIZE OF THE SITE MAY BE DETERMINED BY THE PRESENT AND FUTURE NEEDS OF THE WHOLE SCHOOL PROGRAM. AREAS WITHIN THE SITE SHOULD BE ALLOCATED FOR THE SCHOOL BUILDING, BUILDING EXPANSION, PARKING LOTS AND DRIVEWAYS, PAVED GAME AREAS, PHYSICAL EDUCATION, OUTDOOR INSTRUCTION, A STADIUM WITH PARKING FACILITIES, LANDSCAPING AND BUFFER AREAS, AND UNASSIGNED AREAS TO BE HELD FOR FUTURE USE.
