The described plan projects future demographic changes in the school district community; and examines the kinds of educational programs, school facilities, and financing that will be required. Following an introduction and a summary of the major recommendations, four chapters, each developed by a professional educational specialist in close cooperation with McKeesport school district personnel, provide information concerning the community and demography of McKeesport, its educational program and school plant facilities, and the current and projected financial picture. The chapter on the community covers the geography and history of the area, recreational opportunities, socioeconomic characteristics, public facilities and services, commerce, and population. Facets of the educational program considered are those of the philosophy of education, administrative organization, school and class size, educational objectives, the program of studies, and the district transportation policy. A detailed description of existing buildings in the district and an outline of a projected building program comprise the chapter on facilities. The presentation concludes with a consideration of tax trends, expenditure patterns, indebtedness, and expenditures and revenues. Numerous maps and tables are included.
