Guidelines and Recommendations for New Hampshire Public Elementary Schools, Kindergarten--Grade 6.
New Hampshire State Dept. of Education, Concord.
Sections concerned with facilities deal with library services, equipment and facilities for science and physical education, and the school building. Recommendations for library service include check lists and standards pertaining to objectives, basic equipment and supplies, individual classroom collections, audio visual collections, library quarters, and expenditure levels for a starting library. Guidelines for the school building are designed to make it adjustable to future changes in curriculum and teaching methods, expandable to accommodate enrollment changes while adhering to the original design and functional areas, durable with low maintenance costs, and easily accessible. Criteria are suggested for sites, health and safety factors, regular classrooms, kindergarten rooms, administrative suites, multi-purpose rooms, and cafeteria and kitchen areas. Equipment and facilities standards for physical education are suggested in both essential and ideal categories. A floor plan and a list of equipment are suggested for a science program. (FPO)
