Appraisal Guide for School Facilities.
Hawkins, Harold L.
Written to answer a long-felt need for a comprehensive, up-to-date planning instrument to measure the quality of school facilities, this appraisal guide serves as a road map for school administrators and boards involved in any type of building program. The guide attempts to evaluate school facilities in terms of their general condition as well as their suitability to meet the educational program of the community. Criteria are categorized according to site, structural and mechanical, building environment, school safety, space utilization, and maintainability. The guide comprises 155 items, each important to the function of a school. The guide can be used to (1) formulate a permanent record, (2) highlight specific needs, (3) examine the need for new facilities, (4) evaluate the need for renovation, and (5) serve as an instructional tool.
