Building Better Schools for Vermont.
Vermont State Dept. of Education, Montpelier.
A booklet designed to assist and advise local districts on procedures and standards involved in obtaining state aid, and to encourage new ideas in school construction. The suggested planning process begins with an analysis of the area and the total population to be served. A consultant is recommended to examine the problems of optimum district size and to project future school populations based on present trends. Once these parameters have been determined, limits can be set on the size and scope of the proposed school. Curriculum planning, including other community uses for the school, follows. The second stage of the planning involves evaluation of present facilities, suggestions for selection of an architect and a site, and financial considerations with respect to state aid and local cost. Guidelines for libraries, classrooms, and a variety of curriculum specialities are suggested as are standards for a number of facilities services. An accompanying chart carries recommended minimum standards for vocational and industrial art education departments. (FPO)
