State Education Agency Facility Planning Services.
Trotter, Charles E., Jr.; Trautman, Paul
The authors investigated the development of a model for a State education agency facilities planning unit, which would be adaptable to a variety of situations in the various States. The effort focused on (1) the services to be provided, (2) the internal organizational pattern, and (3) the internal staffing pattern. Attention was also given to the legislative authorization providing for such State facilities planning units. The first phase of the study involved a review of the literature pertaining to the services provided by State education agency facilities planning units as well as the literature pertaining to theories and principles of organizational patterns. Case studies of facilities planning units in the States of California, Florida, Minnesota, North Carolina, and Washington provided another source of information. A preliminary model for a State education agency facilities planning unit was then constructed and presented for refinement and approval to a jury of State educational facilities planners. The model provides for both regulatory and leadership services, but emphasizes leadership services. It also includes organization and staffing patterns, based on a functional division of work of recommended services. (Author/MLF)
