1971 School Facilities Planning Study. Annual Report.
Delaware State Planning Office, Dover.
In order to properly evaluate capital improvement fund requests from school districts, it was deemed necessary to have an accurate knowledge of growth trends in the respective districts and also an inventory of present and projected capacities. The Preliminary School Facilities Study, published in 1970, was an initial attempt at developing these data since it was not previously being compiled by any single agency. Since enrollments in these districts can be significantly affected by external factors, such as industrial development, housing, etc., which are often dynamic in nature, it was decided to annually update this report. This year several refinements in methodology and output were made resulting in a projection error of less than 0.3 percent for the 1971 school year Statewide. By comparing enrollment projections to present and projected capacity in each district, the Delaware State Planning Office was better able to determine future funding priorities for capital improvements.
