Design and Implement a Procedure for Funding Construction of a New High School.
Ware, Oral Edward
The recently chartered city of Poquoson, Virginia, has a separate school division that is completely independent from New York County. The division superintendent describes in this practicum the processes involved in planning and constructing a new high school building. A building needs study was the first step followed by the selection of an architectural firm to do planning, projections, cost estimates, and preliminary design work. Strong emphasis is placed on strategies and procedures used for securing financial backing. Community support was sought by having "charrettes" involving the community, politicians, architects, and professional educators in the design of the school building. Other efforts to enlist community support included public hearings and an educational assessment questionnaire distributed to every householder in the district. The appendixes contain copies of letters, reports, memorandums, cost estimates, and the questionnaire. (MLF)
