The Administration of a School Construction Program.
Silvernail, Harold E.
This document describes necessary steps in the administration of successful school construction programs. Heavy emphasis is placed upon planning, with school planning seen as a vital part of comprehensive community planning. Advice is given on preparing a school district master plan, and ways are shown for using these planning efforts to advantage in selecting and acquiring school sites. Suggestions are made concerning enrollment projections, educational specifications, setting up individual school planning committees, the desirability of setting up a special department in charge of plant facilities, employment of architects, building specifications, and financing school construction. Finally, several typical criticisms of school construction are discussed and rebutted. A recurring theme of the document concerns the need to use specialists in every phase of the school construction program, both for assuring that facilities meet community and educational needs and as a cost saving measure.
