Long-Range Facility Plans for Unified School District No. 373, Harvey County, Newton, Kansas.
Kansas State Dept. of Public Instruction, Topeka. School Facilities Section.; Newton Unified School District 373, KS.
Curricular trends within the areas of elementary school, middle school, secondary school, and special education influence facilities. Modern school facility planning takes into account the social, emotional, physical, and mental aspects of the whole child. A school environment which requires a minimum of bodily energy for adaptation, allows the child to release a maximum of energy for purposeful living. Educational spaces must be functional both in size and relation to one another and be adaptable to change. Standards for evaluation of existing school facilities include educational adequacy, site and location adequacy, and structural adequacy. Greater emphasis is being placed on special education. Children with special needs total approximately 10 to 13 percent of school age children. (LD)
