School Plants of Warren County. A Survey of the Needs for School Facilities in a County School District.
Bulletin of the Bureau of School Service, v37 n3 Mar 65
Limited to the problem of how to make the best use of existing plant facilities and plan future needs for a country school system, evaluative criteria and standards for existing school buildings with respect to safety, health, space, integration, and flexibility requirements are suggested. A classification scheme for describing facilities based upon building age and ranging from sound facilities with an expected use of up to at least thirty years to facilities recommended for immediate abandonment is discussed along with relevant criteria for each category. Descriptions of school facilities in Warren County follows based on the findings of a study team. The descriptions give an image of each school plant, with sufficient detail to enable the reader to group the units into the classification scheme suggested. Diagrams which represent the quality and utilization of space in the various facilities are included. A review of the total problem of school facilities in Warren County concludes with a discussion of capacities (theoretical and realistic), a rating of facilities, a statement of present needs, a projection of needs to 1975, and the resources available to the district for meeting these needs. Alternatives available to the district are discussed, recommendations are made, plans are suggested and contrasted. (FPO)
