Guidelines designed to help Maryland facilities planners, educators, and community members make informed choices about the types of facilities they will provide for secondary education services are presented in this document. The guide first describes the characteristics of at-risk students and presents an overview of dropout prevention programs. Specific facilities recommendations are presented for promoting academic achievement, open access, personal development, and career exploration/development. Other factors of school effectiveness to consider are school size and recognition of different learning styles. The rest of the document provides a planning process outline, 14 design and planning references, a checklist of recommendations, square footage requirements, and a model student house and high school designs. One table is included. The appendix contains the 1991 Maryland School Facilities Conference program. (Contains 26 references.) (LMI)
