Land -Utilization Options for the Berrien Springs Public Schools.
Klimes, Rudolf E.; And Others
The purpose of this study was to develop land-utilization options for the present holdings of the Berrien Springs Public Schools. In order to base these proposed options on facts and observable evidence, substudies of educational goals, enrollment projections, present school site, and the educational program were conducted. On the basis of the data obtained in these substudies, land-utilization options in three areas were developed--the biosphere, physical education, and general. The recommended biosphere is to be conducive to instructional use and to the encouragement of native wildlife and would contain an arboretum, a pond, trees, and garden space. Various options concerning outdoor physical education facilities are described and illustrated. General land-utilization options include a drainage system to remove standing water from school grounds, landscaping, installation of curbs or other restraining barriers around play area, and facilities for special education.
