Stopping School Property Damage: Design and Administrative Guidelines to Reduce School Vandalism.
This publication provides practical guidelines to design future school buildings and to set up administrative programs for existing structures that can cut the cost of both intentional and accidental school property damage. The first section on building exterior design responses discusses ways to reduce the ongoing cost of property damage by careful design of a school's physical plant. The section on building interior design responses considers ways to minimize costs of property damage and maintenance through design and materials specification. The third section contains ways to cut property damage costs through administrative programs aimed at involving students in the school, at using personnel effectively, and at keeping "eyes on the school." The fourth section, design accountability checklists, presents one general question for every major design issue and then a series of specific "yes-no" questions to determine if the issue has been taken into account by the architect in the design. The final section is an annotated bibliography of literature on vandalism and property damage. (Author/MLF)
