Modernization of School Buildings. A Feasibility Study.
Jongeward, Ray E.; And Others
The conclusions of this study were that modernization of school buildings is feasible if the costs do not exceed 20 to 40 percent of the cost of new or replacement construction. Variables include site, type of interior and exterior construction, and the number of teaching stations. The teaching staff needs to correlate educational changes with proposed building changes; building changes must be reviewed in coordination with the local planning commission, fire and health officials, engineering office, and architectural services. An incidental consideration to this study was a formula for state aid for modernization costs and a statement of the role of the state educational department in modernization programs. The appendix includes the preliminary modernization survey instrument developed in the Washington Program. (JZ)
