Reported on here is a study that was concerned with the impact of the development of a middle-school program on the long-range need for educational facilities in the Atlanta Public Schools. The decision was made by the Atlanta Board of Education to implement a middle-school program, and several new middle-school facilities have been planned and constructed. It became obvious that this shift in school organization would have significant effects on the nature of program offerings and the facilities required at both the elementary and secondary levels of school organization within the school system. The purpose of this study has been to determine the need for middle-school facilities throughout the school system and to make recommendations for housing the middle-school program. Additionally, as the middle-school program is implemented, changes required for meeting the needs of lower elementary and high school education have also been recommended. This report is intended to provide the school staff and school board with information and recommendations to guide their decisions and actions regarding facilities development over the next decade. The long-range plan produced herein can and should serve as the means for decisionmakers of the school system to make more effective decisions regarding educational facilities. (Author/MLF)
