School Facility Logistics. A Study for Alberta Education Dealing with School Planning, Acquisition, and Funding Alternatives.
Woods, Gordon and Co., Toronto (Ontario).
Alternatives to current provincial policies and procedures relating to school construction and its funding are identified and examined. The report sets out findings and recommendations in four sections. In the first section, School Facility Planning, Policies, and Procedures, school building is proposed as an integral part of shared community facilities. Various stages in the evolution from simple school house to sophisticated community facility are discussed. Section 2, School Population Projections, recommends the assessment of the most likely economic prospects for Alberta and an economically induced population forecast. A second task is seen as the development of the processes for disaggregation and dimensioning of projected provincial population changes into a regional context for each of the ten regional planning areas. Section 3, Sharing, Acquiring, and Disposing of Facilities, discusses the advantages and disadvantages of sharing facilities with other public organizations and also private enterprise. The various methods of acquiring facilities are examined. In section 4, School Facility Funding Alternatives, four new funding mechanism alternatives and a recommended utilization mechanism are examined. (Author/MLF)
