Planning Educational Facilities.
Schwehr, Frederick E.
The Journal of Experimental Education, v31 n2 December 1962
The planning of educational facilities is viewed as a function of the educational objectives of the institution. A physical facilities survey must be related to the type of program, enrollment trends and projections, and availability of faculty. Three basic planning study procedures described are a survey of present facilities, a facilities quality study, and the analysis sketch. A study of the quality of the facility would include an analysis of heating, wiring, equipment, and structure. The analysis sketch includes a statement justifying the need for and adequacy of the proposed educational program, estimated costs, instructional programs, a final educational program statement, and graphics analysis. All of the above precedes the development of the project budget. The author concludes that a team approach to gathering and analyzing data is most effective. Two sample forms for collecting facilities data are included. (NI)
