School Facilities Technical Report: City of Manassas Public Schools.
Earthman, Glen I.
The Town of Manassas Park officially became a city in 1975. Shortly thereafter the State Board of Education certified the city as a separate school division. The general purpose of this study was to provide the newly appointed school board with data on which to base decisions regarding school facilities. Facility needs are identified and existing school facilities evaluated. A considerable portion of the report deals with the legal aspects involved in the transition from town to city status of the redistribution of school properties. The law does not specifically provide for the transfer of county school buildings situated within the limits of a newly created city to the city or the city school board. Therefore, the report makes a critical assessment concerning the realities of acquisition of the existing structure within the city limits, and develops an alternative plan for acquisition of new facilities if the county does not sell or convey to the city any school buildings.
