Using Surplus School Space for Community School Centers. #5 in a Series of 6 Booklets.
Educational Facilities Labs., Inc., New York, NY.
This booklet is the fifth in a series that examines community school centers. Because of the decline in school enrollments, many school districts must now cope with staff reductions, fiscal constraints, and an excess of unused space in school buildings. Although the school population is declining, the overall population in most communities is not. Rather, the population mix is changing and other kinds of services are needed. The needs to house new and expanded services and to find alternative uses for surplus space are complementary. This booklet explores the opportunities for reusing surplus school space as community service centers, and the issues and constraints in planning. (Author/MLF)
