Condensed Task Report on Programs to Finance Ohio's School Facilities to Ohio Department of Education.
Brown, Linda; And Others
The areas of (1) facilities planning and programming, and (2) facility financing are examined with regard to their potential for improved educational innovation. In the first area, the report deals with the ways in which local facilities planning can be improved through both local action and increased leadership by the Ohio Department of Education. In the second area, the report deals with the present state program for school buildings in Ohio, and ways in which that program may be improved. Following a description of the current buildings situation, needs for state action are discussed. This is done by considering the Ohio Department of Education's objectives and identifying any gaps that exist between these objectives and current performance in the school facilities area. Evaluations are presented of both short-run and long-run alternatives to school facility financing programs. (FS)
