The Development of Elementary School Educational Specifications and Preliminary Building Plans Through the Use of Citizen and Staff Involvement.
Davis, Robert F.
This dissertation recounts the functioning of a practicum established to develop educational specifications and preliminary building plans for five new elementary schools in the Sacramento City Unified School District. These buildings will be built to replace schools that do not meet earthquake safety standards. Project teams developed educational specifications after citizens, students, teachers, and staff members were surveyed to gain their concerns and suggestions regarding the new schools. The teams continued to work with architects to see that the educational specifications were accurately represented in the architectural drawings. Environmental impact studies were made to assess the effect the new schools would have on the environment. By the end of 1974, the Board of Education and the State had accepted the preliminary plans for the new schools. (Author/MLF)
