The objective of this publication is to focus attention on the various aspects of school programs that relate to outdoor use, and to determine how the site might be structured to meet the school's educational and traffic flow requirements. Subjects discussed include the integration and organization of community and school facilities in order to reduce land and development costs; site selection criteria that indicate the type of site best suited to fulfill school needs; various site uses and their relationship to each other; and site requirements. The guide contains design criteria that illustrate the problems related to school sites including pedestrian and vehicular movement, parking, visual space, lighting, planting, other landscape elements, consideration of factors relating to maintenance, and the design principles involved in the solution of these problems.
