Site development is approached from a non traditional view. Utilization of the natural resources of the site location for instructional programs, broad community use, and increased neighborhood values are discussed. Opportunities for enhanced instructional programs include conservation education, botany, forestry and geology. Planning suggestions and a checklist of federal, state and private funding and assistance sources in acquiring and developing school sites is provided. The school site is viewed as a long term public resource investment and recreationally developed school sites of at least 15 acres are recommended as the most economical investments in the long run.
