Facilities Guidelines. North Carolina Public Schools.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
In July 1987, the North Carolina General Assembly enacted legislation to provide funds for public school construction to assist county governments in meeting their capital building needs and to provide additional funds for selected counties with the most critical school facility needs. This document, in accordance with the legislation's direction, defines and describes the educational spaces needed to support a modern, comprehensive educational program and to set minimal guidelines for types of spaces and for sizes of spaces. The handbook serves as a planning guide for those in the process of building, enlarging, or renovating school facilities. The document is also intended to serve as a guide in: (1) evaluating existing facilities for functional adequacy; (2) determining facility needs; and (3) in developing sound, long-range building plans. The appendix contains design requirements, facility guideline forms, and copies of state statutes. (LMI)
