Systematic Planning for Educational Facilities.
McGuffey, Carroll W.
This monograph provides a systematic approach to the problem of planning educational facilities. It first presents a conceptual framework for a general facilities planning and management system called Facilities Resource Allocation Management Evaluation System (FRAMES). The main components of FRAMES are identified as: (1) needs assessment, (2) facilities programing, (3) resource allocation and distribution, (4) facilities management, and (5) evaluation. The report then focuses attention on the needs assessment component and provides a detailed description of a carefully developed and tested needs assessment model. The monograph should be of considerable interest to practicing planners as well as to college students interested in facilities planning. (Author)
